Most students rely on financial aid to make attending college a reality!

Sixty-three percent of college students get an average of $7,400 each year to go to college. But the paperwork can be confusing, making it difficult for students to get money for college. At College Goal Sunday, students and parents can talk to experts and get in-depth help filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

We strongly encourage students and parents to attend College Goal Sunday together. Because household financial information is needed to fill out the FAFSA, it's easier if you approach it as a team. Learn more about what to bring in our "What to Bring" section.

The FAFSA is required for consideration of most sources of aid. There is a wide variety of financial aid programs available to help families from all income levels, including many grants and scholarships.

Filling out the FAFSA doesn't obligate you to anything.
