College Goal Maryland is free and open to the public. Spanish interpreters will be available at Montgomery College. Students and families will have the opportunity to meet with financial aid professionals and use the Montgomery College computer labs to submit their FAFSA form online.

Families should bring copies of their completed IRS 1040 tax form, W-2 form or other 2010 income and benefits information to assist with the completion of the FAFSA form. Students who are 24 years and older may attend alone and bring their own tax return, W-2 form or other information.
