For the convenience of its students, the Kaskaskia College Financial Aid will host an evening FAFSA Completion Workshop on Thursday, August 1 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in room L-102 on the KC Main Campus.
KC Financial aid professionals will be on hand to assist all students regardless if they are in stage one of initiating the 2013-14 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or finalizing the details. Completing the FAFSA accurately and on time is the first and most important step to obtaining state and federal financial aid.
As students complete the FAFSA, the following records will need to be available to help answer questions on the application: Social Security Card; Driver’s license (if any); Permanent Resident Receipt Card (if applicable); W-2 forms and other 2012 records of money earned; 2012 income tax return (see the instructions on the FAFSA if the tax return has not been completed); Records of child support paid; Records of taxable earnings from Federal Work-Study or other need-based work programs; Records of student grant, scholarship and fellowship aid, including AmeriCorps awards, that was included in your (or your parents’) AGI; Current stock, bond, and other investment records; Current business and farm records; Current bank statements. A dependent student, should have all the records listed above from his or her parents except for their driver’s licenses.
