College Goal Sunday
March 7, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Financial-aid professionals from all across Indiana will be volunteering to help college-bound students and their families open the door to financial aid during College Goal Sunday!
The free program assists Indiana students in filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA form is required for students to be considered for federal and state grants, scholarships and federal student loans at most colleges, universities and vocational/technical schools nationwide.
About the FAFSA
The FAFSA MUST be filed by April 15 to be eligible for Indiana financial aid. One of many reasons College Goal Sunday is so important is because many families perceive the form to be too complicated and time consuming to complete. In less than one afternoon during College Goal Sunday, students and their families can get free help and file the form.
Now in its 32nd year, College Goal Sunday has helped more than 94,000 Indiana students and families complete the FAFSA properly and on time. College Goal Sunday is a charitable program of the Indiana Student Financial Aid Association (ISFAA).
What Students Should Bring
Students should attend College Goal Sunday with their parent(s) or guardian(s), and parents’ should bring completed 2019 IRS 1040 tax returns, W-2 Forms and other 2019 income and benefits information. Students who worked should also bring their income information.
Students 24 years of age or older may attend alone and bring their completed 2019 IRS 1040 tax return, W-2 Form or other 2019 income and benefits information. Students and parents are encouraged to apply for their U.S. Department of Education FSA IDs at studentaid.gov before logging in to the event.
Attendees May Win Educational Prizes
Students may also win one of five $1,000 scholarships. Students who attend College Goal Sunday and submit a completed evaluation form will automatically be entered in a drawing for a $1,000 scholarship. The winners will be notified in April, and prizes will be sent directly to the higher education institution selected by those students.
Who should attend College Goal Sunday?
College Goal Sunday is geared toward all who will qualify for admission to a college or technical school in 2021 such as Indiana high school seniors, current college students and adult learners. Basically, anyone who would like help completing the FAFSA!
