State-Wide Free Financial Aid Event to be Held at Belmont College
St. Clairsville, OH (January 9, 2014) – Belmont College (co-hosted with Ohio University Eastern) will host the state-wide college financial aid event “College Goal Sunday” on February 9, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. The no-cost event presented by the Ohio Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (OASFAA) and endorsed by the Ohio Board of Regents, assists students and parents with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The FAFSA is the federal application that is required to receive federal financial aid including the Federal Pell Grant and student loans as well as the need-based state grants.
Due to the great demand expected for assistance in completing the FAFSA, families are encouraged to register for the free event at www.ohiocollegegoalsunday.org or by calling 1.800.233.6734. The FAFSA is the key to funding a college education and helping families to overcome financial barriers that otherwise prevent students from attending the institution of their choice. Studies show that a student is 50% more likely to attend college when they complete the FAFSA. While walk-ins are welcome, registration is encouraged.
OASFAA is a non-profit, professional organization for individuals actively engaged in the administration of financial aid within the State of Ohio for higher education. As an educational organization, OASFAA strives to offer resources to students, families, and high school advisors to promote higher education and increase awareness of financial aid opportunities.
