CHARLESTON, WV - West Virginia students can get free help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and other college financial aid forms during the state's annual College Goal Sunday event.

College Goal Sunday financial aid workshops will be held February 21 from 1 to 4 p.m. at 25 locations, including Glenville State College and WVU-P, Parkersburg.

"Completing the FAFSA is a critical step for anyone considering going to college," Brian Weingart, Senior Director of Financial Aid at the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission, said. "Students must submit this form in order to be considered for a variety of financial aid programs including state and federal grants, scholarships and loans."

Anyone who is planning to pursue some form of education and training beyond high school within the next year should complete the FAFSA. That includes high school seniors, current college students and adults thinking about earning a degree or skill certificate. College Goal Sunday workshops are open to students of any age or income-level.
