Montgomery College to Host Events to Help Future and Current College Students Complete Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Community Invited to Attend College Goal Maryland, February 8 and 26

College-bound students and their families can get professional assistance filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form at two upcoming 2015 College Goal Maryland events, held on two different Montgomery College campuses.

College Goal Maryland is one of many such events held across the country to assist families as they complete the FAFSA—the form required by colleges and universities to qualify for scholarships, grants and loans.

The first event will take place on February 8 from 2–4 p.m. at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus in the Charlene R. Nunley Student Services Center, 7625 Fenton Street, Silver Spring. The second event will take place on February 26 from 4-6 p.m. at the Germantown Campus in the High Technology and Science Center located at 20200 Observation Drive, Germantown.

College Goal Maryland is free and open to the public, and Spanish interpreters will be available. Current college students who are renewing or filling out the FAFSA form for the first time are also welcome at this event.

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. Information will be available about Maryland state grants and scholarships. Students can also enter to win a $500 scholarship.

Students who are 23 years old or younger should attend College Goal Maryland with a parent or guardian. Families should bring copies of their completed IRS 1040 tax form, W-2 form or other 2014 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 and other 2014 income and benefits information.

The snow date for the Takoma Park/Silver Spring event is February 15, same time and location, and the snow date for the Germantown event is March 5, same time and location.

At the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus, parking is available in the West Garage, on Fenton and King Streets. The Germantown Campus has parking available in parking lots A, B and C. Both campuses are accessible by public transportation.
