Ivy Tech Community College Evansville reminds everyone of Virtual College Goal this Sunday


This is a great resource for anyone wanting to attend any  college and there is no charge to find out exactly what you or your student needs to get started.

Financial aid professionals from throughout the area will be volunteering to help collegebound students and their families open the door to financial aid during the first ever Virtual College Goal Sunday. The event is set for 1 p.m. (CST), Sunday, Oct. 25.

Bill Wozniak, co-chair of College Goal Sunday said, “We hope all Hoosiers who have not filed already, take advantage of College Goal Sunday, file the FAFSA, and get one step closer to fulfilling their educational goals.”

Volunteers will answer families’ individual questions as needed. To attend College Goal Sunday, go to CollegeGoalSunday.org on October 25, and click the link displayed on that page to enter the virtual event. For the best filing experience, working from a computer/laptop during the event is highly recommended.

If an individual needs access to a WIFI connection, there are mobile hotspots located on the glass windows over the parking places near Door J at the Evansville campus, 3501 N. First Avenue. Individuals are welcome to come to campus, remain in their car, and participate in the event using the WIFI connections, said Casey Trela, director of Financial Aid, at Ivy Tech Community College Evansville.

The free program assists Indiana students in filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), no matter what college they choose to attend. The FAFSA form is required for students to be considered for federal and state grants, scholarships and student loans at most colleges, universities and vocational/technical schools nationwide. The FAFSA MUST be filed by April 15 to be eligible for Indiana financial aid.
