PITT-BRADFORD FINANCIAL AID STAFF TO HELP COLLEGE-BOUND STUDENTS COMPLETE FEDERAL FINANCIAL AID FORMS

Free Help This Weekend

BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s Financial Aid staff will offer free help this weekend to college-bound students, regardless of the school they will be attending.

Financial aid professionals will be available Saturday, Feb. 7, 2009, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Room 158 of the Sport and Fitness Center to help families complete and electronically submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Filling out the FAFSA is the first step in securing financial assistance at most colleges and universities.

The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency is providing materials for the workshop.

“We encourage all students who will need financial assistance to attend college to complete the FAFSA early,” said Melissa Ibañez, director of financial aid at Pitt-Bradford. “This workshop is open to the public and will help achieve that goal.”

The FAFSA has specific guidelines for determining whether a student is considered a parent’s dependent. In general, for traditional students under the age of 24, copies of both student and parent tax information is needed to complete the FAFSA and a parent or guardian should attend. Students older than 24 should bring copies of only their tax information.

Tax information includes: 2008 Federal Income Tax Returns, all W-2 forms, and any other income or benefit documents. Attendees who have not yet completed their tax returns should bring all 2008 W-2 forms and any other income or benefit documents and 2007 Federal Income Tax Returns and W-2 forms so that accurate estimations can be made.

The primary goal of the FAFSA completion workshop is to ensure that students accurately complete the first step in applying for financial aid.
