(VINCENNES) - Filling out college financial aid paperwork can be complicated and time-consuming, but College Goal Sunday makes it easy. The program offers assistance and advice to help college-bound students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Financial aid professionals will be available at Vincennes University's Vincennes and Jasper campuses during College Goal Sunday on February 12 at 2 p.m. (EST). The Vincennes Campus event will take place at the Shake Learning Resources Center and on the Jasper Campus in the Classroom Building.

Prior to attending the event, all students and parents should apply for an ID at fsaid.ed.gov which will serve as an electronic signature on the FAFSA.

On the day of the event, students and parents will want to be able to provide the following: Social Security Number, Driver's License Number, 2015 W-2 forms or other records of money earned or received; 2015 Federal Income Tax Return. It would also be helpful to bring bank statements as well as business and investment information.

About College Goal Sunday

Most colleges, universities, and vocational/technical schools throughout the U.S. require students seeking federal financial aid, including grants and loans, to complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA must be received by the federal processor on or before March 10 to be considered "on-time" for Indiana state grant funding. 21st Century Scholars are required to complete and submit a FAFSA to claim their Scholarships.

Now in its 29th year, College Goal Sunday is a charitable collaboration involving the Indiana Student Financial Aid Association (ISFAA), in cooperation with the Indiana Commission for Higher Education. College Goal Sunday is co-funded by Lilly Endowment Inc., NCAN, and the Indiana Secondary Market for Education Loans, Inc.

College Goal Sunday 2017 events will take place throughout Indiana at 40 sites in 34 communities.
