🚨 COLLEGE BOUND SENIORS/SENIOR PARENTS🚨
CFHS will be hosting our first College Goal Event this year! College Goal is an event designed to assist parents and students with filling out the FAFSA Federal Student Aid application. College reps and counselors will be on hand to answer questions about financial aid.
For the 2019-2020 FAFSA, parents and students should bring their 2017 tax information in order to complete the form. All information reviewed by the College Goal volunteers will be kept private and confidential and will not be used for any purpose other than helping the students and families apply for financial aid for college. Students' and family identities will be protected to the best extent possible, and none of the information being requested will be sent to vendors for other purposes besides applying for aid.
Not all families will have all these documents–but don’t let that stop you from coming. Even if you have no paperwork at all, we can help you complete part of the FAFSA.
