Lake Land College’s TRiO Destination College hosts FAFSA completion nights
Attention college-bound students: don’t wait to fill out the 2013-2014 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Instead, attend one of Lake Land College’s TRiO Destination College FAFSA Completion Nights in your community!
Participants of the FAFSA Completion Night need to bring the following:
• a copy of the student’s and parent’s 2012 federal tax return and all W-2’s (if filing). If 2012 tax information is unavailable, tax information can be estimated using W-2s or 2011 tax returns;
• 2012 asset and investment information for the student and parent;
• a federal student aid pin number for the student and one parent that should be applied for ahead of time at www.pin.ed.gov ;
• and a printed copy of the 2013-2014 FAFSA worksheet that is available at www.fafsa.gov.
Students are encouraged to fill out the printed 2013-2014 FAFSA worksheet as much as possible before the meeting.
