Free FAFSA Completion Assistance

Filling out the FAFSA is quite possibly the least exciting part of going to college.  If you have to fill one out and you’re just not into it, why not bring it to the library?

You’ve probably heard of PHEAA — the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency.  The sole reason they exist is to help you with your financial aid.  On Saturday April 21, a PHEAA representative will be at the Main library in Oakland to guide you through the whole form and answer any other financial aid questions you might have.  You’ll need to bring your (and/or your parents’) completed tax return, W-2 forms and any other income information your family might happen to have.  For more information on what you need to get ready, check out PHEAA’s FAFSA help page.

After filling out the FAFSA you become eligible for specific funding for Pennsylvania residents, but you have to get the state grant form in by May 1st.  Grab that money while you can, people!  Then we can talk about scholarships, grants, and other kinds of financial aid.  Almost everything requires that you’ve already filled out the FAFSA before you can apply.  But if you want to get ahead on scholarship research, you can call or visit the Job & Career Education Center on the Main library’s second floor.

We have a limited number of computers available, so you will have to register for this event.  Call (412) 578-2561, or fill out the form at the bottom of the event listing here.  Anyone who is filling out a FAFSA is welcome – teens, adults, and families.
