Southwest Texas Junior College will host a "FAFSA Workshop 2012" on Tuesday, February 28th from 5:00pm - 7:00pm to help students begin the process of applying for financial aid to attend college.
SWTJC Financial Aid Advisor Janell Fernandez, along with Financial Clerk Maria Villarreal will be on hand to assist students in filling out their Free Application for Federal Student Assistance (FAFSA). The event will be held in room E 204 in E building.
Now is the perfect time for students seeking financial assistance for the fall 2012 and spring 2013 school year, as well as summer aid. Students and parents who attend Tuesday's event should bring the following with them to file their application on-line: 1) Student's driver's license and social security card; 2) w-2 forms of students and parents, and other records of money earned in 2011; 3) records of any untaxed income received by students or parents in the form of welfare, social security or veterans benefits; 4) the student's and parent's 2011 tax return, if completed.
"Even if students don't have all the needed information we encourage them to come and we can at least get started on the application, as well as find out on the new changes for verification," Fernandez said.
The college will provide computer's and staff to actually begin filing out the FAFSA on-line. For more information on "FAFSA Workshop 2012" or other financial aid questions call (830) 758-4116 or (830) 758-4117.
