The “Cash for College Financial Aid Workshop” will be held Thursday, Feb. 13, from 3-7 p.m. in the Walter H. Nolte Gateway Center. Attendees need to check-in at the Chapman Lobby in the Nolte Gateway Center, where they will be directed to the workshop.

The free workshop is designed to help current and future college students fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form, necessary to apply for federal student aid. “We will have experts on hand from the financial aid office and various other campus partners to assist students with all things financial aid including FAFSA filing, scholarship applications, verifications, and financial aid appeals,” said Shelby Garner, enrollment services specialist at Casper College.

Students planning to attend the workshop will need to bring their 2018 federal tax information or tax returns including IRS W-2 information for them and their spouse if they are married, and for their parents, if they are a dependent student.

Those unable to attend the event, or who need additional assistance, can receive a one-on-one appointment to meet with a financial aid office representative Feb. 13, by calling enrollment services at 307-268-2323.

According to the United States Department of Education, completing and submitting the FAFSA gives students access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school.

The Nolte Gateway Center is located on the Casper College campus.
