UC to Host FAFSA Workshop

Event Slated to Help Community with Federal Financial Aid Form

Written By Alexis March '12, PR Intern

UC will host a free workshop for parents, to help them fill out the FAFSA form required by most colleges.


Utica, NY (01/14/2013)
- What’s more daunting for the parents of a college student than final grades?

For many, it is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) form, the first step toward getting federal aid for college, career school or graduate school. It’s the time of year to complete the annual form, which is required by many colleges.

To make the burden easier, Utica College will host a workshop on the form on Saturday, Feb. 9 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. Registration is required, as space is limited.  Computers and assistance will be available.
