What is College Goal Sunday?

  • It's an all day help session to give you one-on-one help with any financial aid question that you might have, no limits.
  • Helps you learn and understand the FAFSA
  • Lets you fill out the FAFSA on the spot with one-on-one help
  • Helps you receive all that you're eligible for according to your situation
  • Gives you information on what you're eligible for and all of the deadline that might be required. 
  • Gives you an opportunity to speak with real Financial Aid Administrators about any concerns you may have.  No need for appointments, this is on the spot advising.

Why come?

  • The FAFSA form is required to be filled out for consideration of Federal and State grants and loan programs.
  • Filling out the FAFSA can be confusing and this offers one-on-one guidance for free.
  • Some schools require it for awarding institutional aid.
  • Not everyone's situation is the same and the FAFSA allows for exceptions in some cases and this offers you a way of talking with a Financial Aid Administrator from many of the area colleges and universities. 

What should you bring?

  • Students and parents are encouraged to bring their 2014 IRS 1040 tax return, W2 Forms and other 2014 income benefits information.
  • If the student is over the age of 24 then they would just need their 2014 IRS 1040 tax return, W2 Forms and other 2014 income benefits information.
  • Get your FAFSA Checklist and be on top of the game.

Don't have your taxes done, yet?

  • Not a problem just come with your W2 Forms and any other financial documents and we will help.
  • Your taxes do not have to be filed to complete your FAFSA.
  • You can supply an estimate of your tax information and then make corrections later.

What you could win?

  • Help Completing and FAFSA saving time and confusion.
  • You get the FAFSA Completed before the Indiana March 10th deadline.
  • "Students who attend any of the College Goal Sunday sites and submit a completed evaluation form will automatically be entered in a drawing for an educational prize. Three educational prizes, worth $1,000 each, will be awarded statewide - one for northern Indiana, one for central Indiana and one for southern Indiana. The winners will be notified in March; prizes will be sent directly to the higher education institutions selected by the winning students."
