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.
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.

"The thing that really stood out for me in the PRJ department was the faculty. They weren't just professors teaching -- they were mentors, friends, confidants, and when they needed to be, my parents away from home." "The thing that really stood out for me in the PRJ department was the faculty. They weren't just professors teaching -- they were mentors, friends, confidants, and when they needed to be, my parents away from home. The program was like a family -- from its patriarch Raymond Simon all the way down to the freshman on his first day of classes. I felt welcome and important from the start, but was encouraged and expected to thrive."
