MWCC Hosting FAFSA Day for Financial Aid Assistance

pennant[1]Mount Wachusett Community College will host FAFSA Day Massachusetts on Sunday, Feb. 22 at 1 p.m. at the Gardner campus.

Every high school senior, college student, and adult student who will be attending college during the 2015-2016 academic year needs to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to apply for federal, state, and institutional financial aid. FAFSA Day Massachusetts, part of the national College Goal Sunday program, provides free help statewide to students and families looking to complete the FAFSA.

Families are encouraged to visit www.FAFSADay.org to view locations, dates, and times, to register, and to see a list of what to bring. The services are free and available to anyone attending college for the 2015-2016 academic year. Low-income, first-generation students are especially encouraged to attend.

FAFSA Day is staffed by volunteer financial aid and higher education experts available to provide families with one-on-one assistance. FAFSA Day is a non-profit program sponsored by Massachusetts Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, MEFA, American Student Assistance, and USA Funds.
