The goal for this event is to increase financial aid awareness and the number of students who apply for financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the priority deadline of April 1, 2014. Current students are welcome to attend.
The main reasons for applying by the priority deadline are:
- Many need-based grants are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. Students who apply by April 1, receive priority consideration for these funds.
- Applying early and submitted all financial aid documents ensures that a student's fall 2014 schedule will not be purged for non-payment by the tuition payment deadline.
Students can stop by OCET Room 104A on February 26th and receive assistance with completing their FAFSA. Students who are unable to make it to this workshop, but would still like assistance with completing the FAFSA are encouraged to call the Financial Aid Office at 245-8360 to schedule an appointment.
