(UNDATED) - Hoosier students of all ages can learn how to pay for education beyond high school as part of Learn More Indiana's annual "Cash for College" campaign.

The effort kicks off statewide this month and continues through Indiana's March 10 deadline for filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the form that qualifies students to receive financial aid from colleges, the State of Indiana, the federal government and other sources.

"Cash for College helps students prepare to pay for college, so they can graduate with minimal debt," said Teresa Lubbers, Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education. "By teaching students the values of saving for college, getting good grades, and completing the FAFSA, we help students navigate the financial aid process."

FAFSA Friday, the annual live webinar hosted by Learn More Indiana takes placethis Friday at noon and 6 p.m. (EST). Get all your financial aid questions answered during this interactive, online presentation airing at www.FafsaFriday.org. Financial aid experts will walk students and parents through the process of completing the form and will answer questions via phone, email, and social media. Submit your FAFSA-related questions via email (fafsa@learnmore.org), Twitter (twitter.com/learnmorein) or Facebook (facebook.com/learnmorein).
