Financial Aid Workshop Coming To Kimball

Thursday, March 1, 2018

Chattanooga State is offering a free Financial Aid Workshop at the Kimball Site, 2100 Main St., on Thursday, March 15 from 4-6 p.m. CST.

"Financial aid for college is one area that confuses both students and parents alike. Chattanooga State Community College would like to make this topic less stressful and easily understood for residents in Marion and Grundy counties who wish to apply for college aid," officials said.

Students may fill out the 2018-19 FAFSA prior to, or at the session by visiting https://fafsa.ed.gov. FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which must be filed yearly in order to receive aid. Attendees wishing to attend Chattanooga State should bring a copy of tax returns and W-2s for 2016.

"There will be plenty of time to ask questions, seek answers about a filed FAFSA or verification issues. Parents are encouraged to come with their student," officials said.

Reservations for this free workshop should be made by calling 423.837.1327.
