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.
To register for the workshop, visit www.utica.edu/finance/sfs/registration.cfm.
Participants should bring their 2012 tax information to complete the form.
For more information, visit www.utica.edu or contact the Office of Student Financial Services at (315) 792-3179.

"My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes and a range of fieldwork assignments. I remember how exciting it was to actually relate theory into practice." "My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes such as Anatomy and Physiology and Medicines and Pediatrics, which has been a great asset in working in a health care profession. Fieldwork hours with both healthy and hospitalized children including a wide range of ages and abilities were an invaluable experience. I remember how exciting it was during my internship when I was able to actually relate theory into practice."
