FAFSA Workshop to be Held Feb. 10

To receive student financial aid for college, a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed every school year. The quickest way to complete and submit the FAFSA is electronically through the official FAFSA web site.

Potomac State College of West Virginia University will once again be offering a free FAFSA workshop. The workshop will be held in Academy Hall on Sunday, February 10 from 1 to 4 p.m. Computers will be available and financial aid staff will be present to assist families of new or current students to complete the FAFSA and submit it electronically. The priority deadline for completion of the FAFSA is March 1, 2013.

Participants will need the following information to complete the worksheet and/or the 2013-2014 FAFSA:

  • Social Security number for the student and the student’s parents if required to provide parental information.
  • Driver’s license if the student has one.
  • Federal income tax information or tax returns for 2012, including IRS W-2 forms for the student and spouse if the student is married or for the student’s parents if required to provide parental information. If the 2012 federal tax information is not yet available, the student can still complete the FAFSA, indicating a ‘will-file’ status by estimating their 2012 financial information, and then providing the correct information when the 2012 federal tax returns are completed.
  • Information on savings, investments, businesses, and farm assets for the student and parents, if required to provide parental information.
