February is Financial Aid Awareness Month. Sauk Valley Community College's Office of Financial Assistance will co-host “College Goal Sunday,” from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 20, in Room 1E4. This event is co-sponsored by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC).
Sauk’s financial aid staff and ISAC representatives will be on hand to help students and parents complete their FAFSA online right at Sauk. Students must bring their U.S. Department of Education PIN number, 2010 federal taxes and 2010 W-2s for student, 2010 Federal Taxes and 2010 W-2s for parents (if student is a dependent), and a valid driver's license.
In addition, College Awareness & Preparation (CAP) will sponsor a $50 gift card drawing at 3:30 p.m. The gift card can be used for any educational expenses at college.
Everyone is urged to attend and not miss this opportunity to complete the FAFSA early so as not to lose state funding or other scholarship opportunities. For more information on College Goal Sunday, call 815/288-5511, ext. 339.
