WestConn joined sister university Eastern Connecticut State University to participate in “College Goal Sunday” — an event taking place at 12 locations statewide — in January.
“College Goal Sunday” was an event for parents and college-bound high school seniors to learn about college entrance requirements and obtain assistance in filling out financial aid application forms. They also received assistance in the completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. Most grants and scholarships require a completed FAFSA form, which does not obligate applicants to attend college, but is required for most sources of financial aid.
At these sessions, teams of experts were available to answer any questions about sources of financial aid.
