Capital Community College is one of 13 schools and colleges in Connecticut hosting “College Goal Sunday” on Sunday, Jan. 30th at 1:30 pm. The annual event provides information and assistance on opportunities for scholarships and navigating the college financial aid process.
Open to the public, College Goal Sunday involves volunteers across the state “with the common goal of making sure that the process of applying for college financial aid does not become an obstacle that would keep any person from pursuing an education beyond high school.”
In addition to learning about information on current financial aid programs, participants will receive hands-on assistance in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), according to organizers.
“Capital is once again pleased to serve as one of the host locations for this year’s College Goal Sunday event. This is a free, on-site program in which financial aid professionals and community based service providers assist high school students and their families with completing the FAFSA application,” said Bryan Lewis, Capital’s assoicate director of financial aid.
Other locations in Greater Hartford for College Goal Sunday include Central Connecticut State University, New Britain; Hall High School, West Hartford, and Manchester Community College, Manchester.
