Dec 16, 2012 – Connecticut high school students and others interested in learning more about attending college are invited to College Goal Sunday, a free workshop at Middlesex Community College’s Wheaton Hall on January 27, 2013 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The process of applying for college can seem complicated, especially finding financial resources and applying for aid to make the dream of attending college a reality. College Goal Sunday gives students and their families a great first step on the pathway to 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). In addition to receiving assistance in filling out the FAFSA, participants will receive information regarding state and federal financial aid programs.
College Goal Sunday is funded and sponsored by the Lumina Foundation for Education, the YMCA of the USA, the Connecticut Association of Professional Financial Aid Administrators (CAPFAA) and the Connecticut Association of Educational Opportunity Programs (CAEOP). For more information or to register for the event, visit collegegoalsundayct.org or contact MxCC’s Associate Director of Financial Aid Services Michael Amouzou at 860-343-5737.
