Prospective college students can get free help completing college financial aid applications this weekend at College Goal Sunday 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.
Pulaski Tech financial aid advisors will assist students beginning at 2 p.m. Sunday in Ottenheimer Library on the college's main campus in North Little Rock. In addition to receiving assistance in filling out the FAFSA, participants will receive general information about state and federal financial aid programs.
Similar events will be taking place at 36 sites throughout the state. For a complete list and more information, visit www.arcollegegoalsunday.org
The Arkansas Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators and the Arkansas Department of Higher Education received a three-year grant, totaling $150,000, from the Lumina Foundation for Education to implement the College Goal Sunday program in Arkansas.
This is the second year for the program.
