Harrison College hosting workshop on financial aid

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

TERRE HAUTE -- Harrison College's Terre Haute campus, located at 1378 S. State Road 46, will host a free financial aid workshop and open house for military personnel and their dependents Thursday, March 3, from 5-7 p.m., and Friday, March 4, from 9 a.m.-noon.

The college's financial aid department will be available to offer assistance to students in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.

Servicemen and women and their dependents are encouraged to attend the workshop regardless of the college they plan to attend.

Harrison College's financial aid analyst will assist in the completion of all necessary forms and answer any questions. The college's financial aid department is dedicated to making the process of applying for financial aid simple and less frustrating.

"This workshop is just one way that we can give back to the military community in Terre Haute," Harrison College's admissions representative Katrina King said. "We want to show our appreciation and respect for their service.

"As an Army wife and former student, I know how important it is to get the right funding for college. I used the GI Bill for my schooling and I found filling out the paperwork for the FAFSA confusing. I'm glad that I had help from people who knew about the military side of things."

The FAFSA is required of any student seeking federal financial aid, including federal student grants, work-study funds and loans. The application may also be used to apply for most state and some private financial aid. To learn more about FAFSA, log on to www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Participants of the FAFSA workshop are asked to bring their Social Security number, date of birth, driver's license, 2010 completed federal tax returns (or estimates), 2010 untaxed records (Social Security, temporary assistance to needy families, child support, welfare of veterans benefit records, etc.), 2010 business and investment information and checking and savings account balances.

For information about Harrison College or to register for the workshop, call 1-812-877-2100 or log on to www.harrison.edu.
