The fifth annual West Virginia College Goal Sunday (CGS) event will be held at 25 sites across West Virginia, including Bluefield State College, on Sunday, February 9, 2014.  Students and parents can stop by the BSC location in the W. Paul Cole, Jr. School of Business/Mahood Hall anytime from 1 to 4 p.m.

This event is an opportunity for students and parents to have financial aid experts provide free assistance in filling out the 2014-15 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the cornerstone of the higher education financial aid application process. 
The FAFSA is a crucial first step for all college students who plan to pay for college with the help of grants, scholarships, work-study funds and/or student loans.  
Individuals who plan to attend college and would like help with completion of the FAFSA or would like answers regarding general financial aid questions are encouraged to attend.  Interested students and parents are asked to bring their Social Security numbers, 2013 Federal Tax Return, W-2, other income records, driver's license and other valid ID to the session. If families' 2013 tax returns are not yet available, participants can either use their 2012 tax information or estimate for 2013. The more income information that families can provide, the more likely they will be able to submit their FAFSA on the day of the event. All information shared is protected by privacy laws.
 
Each eligible family who completes the Student/Family Survey during the CGS event will be entered for a chance to win a Kindle Fire. To register and learn more about College Goal Sunday and specific time and site information, visit: www.cfwv.com.
This year's College Goal Sunday efforts in West Virginia are coordinated by the College Foundation of West Virginia (CFWV) with funding and support from the Lumina Foundation for Education and USA Funds.
Individuals interested in learning more about College Goal Sunday at Bluefield State College are encouraged to contact College Goal Sunday site coordinator Dr. Sarita A. Rhonemus (sarhonemus@bluefieldstate.edu or 304-327-4096).
