         PENDLETON --- With April 1 as Tri-County Technical College's deadline for applying for the best financial aid package for the fall 2014 semester, the College is hosting College Goal SC February 22 to help students and their families fill out and file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA.

         The FAFSA is the first step to receiving Federal aid and it is a requirement for most college students who plan to pay for college.

         College Goal SC is set for Saturday, February 22, from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. in Pickens Hall, Room 140, on the Pendleton Campus.  This free event is open to anyone who has questions or wants help in completing the FAFSA.  If you would like to attend this event, please visit www.collegegoalsc.org for more information.

         Financial aid professionals and representatives from Tri-County, Anderson University and Southern Wesleyan University will be on hand to help college-bound students and their families with the financial aid application process and admissions-related questions.

          Tri-County Financial Aid Counselor Carla Brewer stressed that both students and parents should have at least the following information with them:  2013 Federal tax return, 2013 W-2 forms, 2013 untaxed income records (Social Security, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, welfare, or veterans benefits records); and Social Security number.

         "Many students across South Carolina still are not aware of all the higher education choices, free financial assistance and general support available to them," said Brewer.  "The College Goal Program promotes college access to all students in South Carolina. We are letting students and parents know that higher education can be such a reality - as long as you are willing to do the ground work. We are attempting to reduce or eliminate one major barrier to postsecondary education: applying for financial aid."

          For more information, contact Carla Brewer at 646-1650 or cbrewer8@tctc.edu.
