FAFSA Day Massachusetts
(formerly COLLEGE GOAL SUNDAY)
Sunday, January 25, 2015
1:00 – 4:00 pm
BCC’s Main Campus, Pittsfield
On Sunday, January 25, from 1:00 – 4:00, BCC’s financial aid staff will be joined by financial aid professionals from MCLA, Bard College at Simon’s Rock and Williams College to provide free assistance to local families applying for college financial aid for the 2015-2016 academic year.
This event known as FAFSA Day Massachusetts will take place at BCC’s Main Campus for the first time:
• Students/families new to the financial aid process will participate in a 1½ hour guided presentation in K-111.
• Those who are ready to file their FAFSA will go directly to computer classrooms or the Computer Lab where support personnel will be on hand to assist them as needed.
• We will also staff a “Fast Track” table in K-Lobby for those with quick questions.
Please help spread the word to students, family, friends and neighbors who could benefit from our expertise. Online workshop registration at www.FAFSADay.org is strongly recommended.
FAFSA Day Massachusetts mobilizes financial aid professionals from colleges across the Commonwealth to help families of college-bound students with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov, the application required of all students seeking grant or loan assistance, and with the CSS PROFILE, an application required by certain colleges in addition to the FAFSA.
Locally, this free workshop is sponsored by The Learning Connection Inc./Educational Opportunity Center in cooperation with financial aid professionals from Berkshire County’s four colleges.
FAFSA Day Massachusetts programs are administered annually by the Massachusetts Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (MASFAA), with funding for such programs across the nation provided by the Lumina Foundation for Education.
