Event will help with filling out FAFSA

Clark College and Washington State University Vancouver will again team up to host College Goal Washington, a free annual event that helps students and families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the form required to apply for federal financial assistance for higher education.

The event will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 24.

New this year, the event will also cover the Washington Application for State Financial Aid, the new form created through Washington’s Real HOPE Act that allows certain low-income, non-citizen students to apply for state financial aid.

Spanish and Russian interpreters will be available.

“Because the law was passed recently, there is confusion and uncertainty about how it works and who is eligible to apply,” said Karen Driscoll, director of financial aid at Clark College. “We are committed to helping our community’s students and their families understand their financial aid options.”

The event is open to all students and families, no matter where a student plans to go to school. Students and parents are encouraged to attend together.

Typically, the FAFSA form takes about 45 minutes to complete.

In addition to computer labs for completing the FAFSA, College Goal Washington will offer a brief welcome presentation and workshops. Clark College is located at 1933 Fort Vancouver Way.

Individuals who need an accommodation due to a disability should call 992-2314.
