Parents and students looking for free assistance completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) are encouraged to attend FAFSA Day at BVT. The FAFSA is the federally required form for students seeking federal and state financial aid, including grants and loans at colleges throughout the nation. FAFSA Day at BVT is being held as a part of the Massachusetts College Goal Sunday Program, a non-profit, volunteer driven program providing free assistance to students and families seeking to complete the FAFSA.
FAFSA Day at BVT will provide participants with free one-on-one assistance from experienced financial aid administrators and FAFSA experts, as well as access to computers and Spanish translators. Whether a family has already started the FAFSA or will be seeing the application for the first time, they can expect to submit a completed FAFSA by the end of the afternoon. In addition, participants will leave the event with better knowledge of the overall financial aid process and an outline of what to do once a FAFSA is filed.
Students and parents planning on attending FAFSA Day at BVT are reminded to each bring:
- FAFSA Pin (available at www.pin.ed.gov)
- Social Security Number
- Driver’s License number
- Most recent federal tax return
- Most recent W-2 or year-end pay stub
- Untaxed income records
