The University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc is one of 29 locations statewide taking part in Wisconsin’s ninth annual College Goal Wisconsin. The program offers financial aid application assistance to students planning to attend college during the fall of 2014. UW-Manitowoc will serve as a host site on Wednesday, February 26 at 6:00 p.m. in Founders Hall.
College Goal Wisconsin, sponsored by the Wisconsin Association for Student Financial Aid Administrators, is designed to address the needs of low-income and first-generation college students who are completing and submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Federal Government requires a FAFSA from all students seeking financial aid, including grants and loans, to attend and pay for college.
Completing the FAFSA is the first step for students to overcome the financial burdens and pursue their goals of higher education.
Dependent students, those born after January 1, 1991, should bring a parent along with completed federal income tax returns for 2013 (if filing) and W2 statements. If a parent isn’t available or the federal income tax is not completed, students should still attend.
The 2013 College Goal Wisconsin assisted 1,145 college-bound students/families.
