ND College Goal Sunday

ND College Goal Sunday

Posted: Updated:

Potential college students seeking student aid attended the "North Dakota College Goal Sunday" program at Minot State University this afternoon.

Today marked the sixth annual "College Goal Sunday" for students seeking help in their FAFSA form and other financial aid applications.

Many college students and their families are unfamiliar with the financial aid application process.

The intent of the class held at Minot State is to help low-income minorities and first generation college students complete their FAFSA.

The North Dakota Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators holds a series of these College Goal Sunday events around the state in March to help students and their families complete the applications.

There aren't any qualifications to meet.

Any student can fill out a FAFSA form, no matter what form of financial aid they are seeking.

(Merri Jo Connole, Assistant Financial Aid Director at Minot State University) "We get very good feedback from students and their parents who are a little apprehensive about doing the application. It's not difficult, but typically people do have questions on whether or not they're doing the application right so we're happy to help them make sure that it gets submitted correctly."

If you missed the class and are a student seeking financial help, visit "college-goal-sunday-ND-dot-org" or call the Minot State financial aid office at 858-3375.

The office will direct you to the next College Goal event in your local area.
