Harrison College Offering Free FAFSA Assistance
(Staff will help families file for federal student aid at two Terre Haute events)

Terre Haute, Ind. – Feb. 18, 2015 – Harrison College, a private sector college serving nearly 4,000 students worldwide, is participating in two events in Terre Haute next week to help families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to pay for their higher education. 

Harrison financial aid analysts will be on-hand at College Goal Sunday at Ivy Tech Community College from 2–4 p.m. on Feb. 22. Then, Harrison will hold a FAFSA community workshop on Thursday, Feb. 26, from 4–6 p.m. to help families before Indiana’s March 10 filing deadline.

“Paying for college is an important financial decision for families, and filling out the FAFSA can help manage the expense,” said Campus President Brennan Randolph.  “Although it takes only about 30 minutes, we understand completing the form can be intimidating, which is why our trained experts will walk families through the process, step-by-step, to make it as easy as possible and to maximize their aid.”

Filling out the FAFSA form gives students access to more than $150 billion in federal financial assistance and can lead to additional support funds as a requirement for some state and school aid. 

Parents who attend are asked to bring their 2014 tax information.  Those who haven’t filed, yet, are encouraged to bring their W-2’s. 

What: Free Application for Federal Student Aid workshops

Thursday, Feb 26, from 4–6 p.m. at Harrison College, 1378 Indiana 46, Terre Haute, IN 47803
