January 2008 Press Release

 

 

 

College Goal Sunday dates are announced

 

Events are perfect way to educate students about financial aid

 

 

Annapolis, MD (January 23, 2008)


Dates for College Goal Sunday have been announced for 2008. College Goal Sunday is an extremely popular program which invites college-bound students to a location near them to receive advice on completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) , the form required by colleges, universities and most private career schools to qualify for scholarships, grants and loans.


If students are 23 years or younger, they should attend with a parent or guardian. They should bring their parent and guardians’ 1040 tax form, W-2 form or any other 2007 income and benefits information. Students 24 or older should bring their own completed IRS 1040 tax return, W-2 form or other 2007 income or benefits information.


“I encourage all students who are going to or are thinking about attending a college, university or private career school to attend this very important program,” Higher Education Secretary James E. Lyons, Sr., said. “While the college experience is a great one, students are naturally apprehensive at first about embarking on the road to a higher education. This event will help ease their concerns.”
