Baker College of Muskegon Hosts College Goal Sunday

February 05, 2013

Free Feb. 10 event helps parents complete financial aid forms on time
Baker College of Muskegon will host College Goal Sunday on Feb. 10 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Learning Center, 1903 Marquette Ave., Muskegon.

The free event helps parents of college-bound students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on time.

On College Goal Sunday at Baker College of Muskegon, student financial aid experts will be available to guide students and their parents through each step of completing and filing the FAFSA. Students under 23 years of age are encouraged to attend with a parent or guardian. If possible, parents and students should bring their completed 2012 federal tax return (1040) or their W-2 and 1099 forms.

Students who attend the event will have the opportunity to compete for a $1,000 scholarship, an iPad mini and other awards.

College Goal Sunday is a collaborative effort of the Michigan Department of Treasury, the Michigan Student Financial Aid Association and EduGuide. The program was created to increase the number of students who continue education beyond high school and earn postsecondary degrees. The FAFSA is required of any student seeking financial aid, including grants, loans and many scholarships. Last year, more than 1,800 students received assistance at College Goal Sunday events.

In addition to the Baker College of Muskegon campus, approximately 36 colleges and universities throughout Michigan will participate in College Goal Sunday on Feb. 10.
