6 p.m.–7 p.m.
Start college on the right foot with a solid financial plan. College Goal Wisconsin is a financial aid event available to help you learn about what grants and loans are available to you. Attendees will receive free professional assistance completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Any person planning to attend any U.S. college is encouraged to attend.
The FAFSA is the form that must be submitted in order to be considered for federal and state financial aid including grants and loans. Anyone who is planning to pursue a post-secondary education in the 2022-23 academic year should complete the FAFSA.
College Goal Wisconsin is affiliated with a national event that provides free information and assistance to families who need to complete the FAFSA, the federally required form for students seeking financial aid, such as grants and loans. Completing the FAFSA is the first and most important step in qualifying for aid.
