Employees in the financial aid office at Spoon River College will present a free FAFSA Completion workshop at Canton High School on March 9 from 6-7 p.m. in the CHS library. This workshop is for Canton High School seniors and their parents.
Along with the student’s driver’s license, attendees should bring 2020 income information: 2020 tax forms and all W2s (for both the parents and the students if applicable), and any other income records—including income earned from work/business, child support paid or received—and information regarding assets (there are directions on the FAFSA to determine if a business or farm value should be included).
Attendees are welcome to bring their own personal electronic device if they want, but that is not required.
“Completing the FAFSA is now a graduation requirement in the State of Illinois. It’s also the first step to take in order to obtain federal and state aid for college, including applying for scholarships,” said Jo Branson, financial aid director at Spoon River College.
