WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Students with questions about financial aid are encouraged to attend an event Tuesday evening at Northcentral Technical College in Wausau.

College Goal Wisconsin is an event to help families complete the 2023-2024 Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA.

Sharon Hunter, Interim President of College Goal Wisconsin said the event is for anyone who will attend college next fall or students who are currently in college and have not filled out the FAFSA.

“In filing a FAFSA, the students are applying for not only federal aid, but also it is used to determine eligibility for state aid, in some institutions use it to qualify for college scholarships as well,” said Jeff Cichon, director of financial aid at Northcentral Technical College.

The event is Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 6 p.m. Attendees should enter through the Main Entrance. Attendees can enter for the chance to win a $1,000 scholarship.

College Goal Wisconsin is affiliated with a national event that provides free information and assistance to families who need to complete the FAFSA, the federally required form for students seeking financial aid, such as grants and loans. Completing the FAFSA is the first and most important step in qualifying for aid to help pay for college.
