GVSU helps students apply for financial aid

Posted on

College-bound students and their families can get help applying for financial aid during College Goal Sunday, February 14. 

Grand Valley State University is participating in College Goal Sunday, a national initiative aimed at increasing the number of students pursuing higher education. Financial aid staff members from Grand Valley will guide students and families through each step of completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form, or FAFSA. The FASFA form, due March 1, is required for all students seeking financial aid, including grants, loans and scholarships.

Students under 23 years of age are encouraged to attend with a parent or guardian. Parents and students should bring their completed 2015 federal tax return (1040) if possible, or their W-2 and 1099 forms.
