Flathead Valley Community College’s Lincoln County Campus will host College Goal Montana, formerly called College Goal Sunday, a program that provides students who want to attend college and their families the opportunity to obtain assistance in applying for financial aid.
Free and open to all higher-education bound students and their families of all income levels, College Goal Montana is dedicated to guiding students and their families through the paperwork required to apply for financial assistance. Financial aid officers and other qualified professionals will be present to ensure students receive assistance in understanding and completing the necessary paperwork, including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), to receive financial aid.
The event will take place February 8 from 4 to 7 p.m. on the college campus located at 225 Commerce Way in Libby. Appointments are not required.
Students and their families who attend will need to provide Social Security numbers, 2011 federal income tax returns (or 2010 federal income tax returns if 2011 returns are not completed), W-2 forms, tribal income or other aid information, such as TANF, child support or other benefits, and additional asset information including money market funds, stocks and other investments.
Students attending the event can enter to win a $500 scholarship that may be used at any accredited college or program in the nation. The college’s Lincoln County Campus is one of 18 locations throughout the state hosting College Goal Montana.
