Prospective college students can get free help completing college financial aid applications at College Goal Sunday on Feb. 20 at Pulaski Technical College.
The program provides college-bound students and their parents with assistance in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the college financial aid application, and the Arkansas Universal Scholarship Application.
Pulaski Tech financial aid staff will assist students 2- 4 p.m. Sunday in Ottenheimer Library on the college's main campus in North Little Rock, 3000 West Scenic Drive.
