Upcoming FAFSA completion session

The Financial Aid Office at Pennsylvania College of Technology will help current and future college students and their families complete the 2019-20 Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

Penn College’s free FAFSA completion session is scheduled at 4 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The session will be in Room 1049 of the Student and Administrative Services Center on the college’s main campus. Students enrolled or planning to enroll at any college or university are invited. Students who are 23 or younger should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Most first-time students can complete the FAFSA within 45 minutes. Attendees planning to submit their FAFSA during the session should create a student and/or parent FSA ID at least three days prior at www.studentaid.gov. They also should bring copies of their 2017 financial documents, including federal tax returns, W-2 forms, untaxed income statements, record of child support paid or received and amount of their current assets.

Financial Aid staff will also help student and parent taxpayers utilize the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, which allows FAFSA filers to electronically transfer federal tax return information into the FAFSA.

Registration is preferred. For more information and to register, call the Financial Aid Office at 570-327-4766.
