College Goal Sunday to help families finance college

Students and parents will be offered free professional help as they take an important first step to getting college financial aid. College Goal Sunday will be held in Alamosa from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12 at the Adams State College One Stop Student Service Center, located in the Student Union Building. Students can win $1,000 just by attending.

It's all part of the sixth annual College Goal Sunday, a national program that helps families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA must be completed for a student to receive any type of financial aid, including grants, work study, student loans and even many scholarships.

College Goal Sunday is an opportunity for students and parents to get free help in filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA. The FAFSA is the first step and a Federal requirement for all college students who plan to pay for college with the help of grants, scholarships, work-study funds, and student loans.
