State-Wide Free Financial Aid Event to be held at Malone University
January 17, 2014 | Release # 6820
Malone University will host the state-wide college financial aid event "College Goal Sunday" (CGS) on February 9 at 2 p.m. In Mitchell Hall on the campus located at 2600 Cleveland Avenue N.W. in Canton, Ohio.
The free 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 FASFA, 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 they want to. Studies show that a student is 50 percent more likely to attend college when they complete the FAFSA. While walk-ins are welcome, registration is encouraged. Record numbers are expected to be in attendance.
