Financial Aid Events Support Students and Families

As we prepare to enter a new school year, many juniors, seniors and their families will be planning for life after graduation. Financial Aid Events take place early each calendar year to provide support to high school students and their families as they navigate the financial aid process. Students have the opportunity to work with trained volunteers and financial aid experts as they apply for scholarships and file the FAFSA or WASFA. Financial Aid Events are referred to as College Goal Sunday or College Goal Washington in the rest of the state. These events are referred to Financial Aid Events, rather than College Goal Washington/Sunday, to provide better insight into the event purpose and to allow for cohesive branding.

In the Road Map Region for the 2015-16 FAFSA/WASFA campaign season, over 33 high schools, local libraries, and colleges hosted an event which brought in more than 600 students, 150 parents, and 250 volunteers logging 600+ hours.
