UNION — USC Union will host College Goal South Carolina from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, February 23 in the university’s Central Building.
College Goal South Carolina is a free annual event to help students and families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also known as FAFSA. The College Goal is open to all college-bound students, regardless of age. Dependent students under age 24 will need to bring a parent or legal guardian. Even if you are not sure you will be attending college right out of high school, College Goal is still important to attend to ensure you will not miss deadlines when applying for college later on. There will be a drawing to win a Mini iPad and stylus, as well as other random prizes.
If you plan on attending the event, please have the following information: 2012 Federal tax return (or other income documentation), social security number, driver’s license, 2012 W-2 forms or year-end pay stubs, records of money received for both students and parents/legal guardian, 2012 untaxed income records, 2012 bank statements for both student and parent/legal guardian, 2012 business and investment mortgage information and alien registration card (if you are not a US citizen). Also, if you are planning to fill out the FAFSA online at the event, please have your PIN for the FAFSA available. If you don’t have your PIN, you can apply for it www.pin.ed.gov.
