Wednesday, Jan 30, 2013
Seminole State College of Florida’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will host FAFSA Help Desk on Monday, Feb. 18, on the College’s Sanford/Lake Mary Campus to help students and their families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Financial aid will provide free personalized assistance for first time applicants and those updating their information (renewal). The event is from 3-7 p.m. in the Wayne M. Densch Partnership Center (UP-3103). FAFSA is a form needed to receive federal and state financial aid for college tuition.
Admissions specialists will also be available to offer information about grants, work-study programs and scholarships to pay for college. They can also answer other questions about Seminole State and its programs.
Families are encouraged to bring financial documents with them, including:
- 2012 income information
- Social Security card
- Driver’s license
- Parent’s information (if you are dependent).
Also as part of the effort, financial aid experts will answer questions about the FAFSA application on Seminole State’s official Facebook page on Feb. 18 from 3-5 p.m.
Students are urged to complete their FAFSA before March 15 of each year to qualify for most grants for Fall Term.
Those who are unable to attend but need assistance are urged to talk with a financial aid representative at any Seminole State campus or call 407.708.2045.
