College to Host FAFSA Day
RALEIGH, N.C. (January 23, 2024) – Need help paying for college? The first step is to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and Wake Tech is here to help!
The college is hosting FAFSA Day on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the Scott Northern Wake Campus in Building C and Southern Wake Campus in Building L.
Students seeking federal financial aid must complete a FAFSA each academic year. The process is free, and the information provided can qualify students for federal and state aid in addition to other, non-federal grant programs.
On FAFSA Day, students can receive assistance from Financial Aid staff, submit their FAFSA documents and get answers to general financial aid questions. The 2024-25 FAFSA includes numerous changes and enhancements to streamline the application process, reduce questions and barriers and expand eligibility.
Students are encouraged to register for FAFSA Day in advance so that Financial Aid staff will be better prepared to assist. They are also encouraged to complete their Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) prior to FAFSA Day. The student and spouse or parent(s) should bring their 2022 federal tax returns and W-2's.
Ann Guevremont, Wake Tech's dean of Financial Aid, says all students should complete a FAFSA.
"Eligible students leave free money on the table every year. So, why not?" says Guevremont. "Complete the FAFSA and discover potential eligibility for various opportunities. You never know what you might qualify for!"
