College Goal NY FAFSA completion events are set to take place during the months of January and February 2015 to help college-bound students complete the most important tool in securing financial aid, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid – the FAFSA. A list of College Goal NY Event Locations, along with registration information and tips for completing the FAFSA, is posted at CollegeGoalNY.org.

The FAFSA completion events are scheduled in targeted areas throughout New York State that have a history of high financial need and where students submit a disproportionately small number of online FAFSA applications. At each completion event, students and families receive hands-on assistance with their online application and getting answers to questions specific to their circumstances. Participants can enter a drawing to win $500, provided through the College Access Challenge Grant (CACG), to help pay college costs.
