Thursday, February 9, 2012

DENTON (UNT), Texas – Financing a college education can be challenging and overwhelming, especially during tough economic times. The University of North Texas Office of Student Financial Aid & Scholarships wants to make applying for financial assistance a straightforward process.

For the sixth consecutive year, UNT will host College Goal Sunday, a non-profit program that provides free information and assistance to Texas families applying for financial assistance for higher education. The event will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Feb.12 (Sunday) in Room 185 of UNT’s Business Leadership Building, which is located on Highland Street.

College Goal Sunday, a national program, mobilizes financial aid and educational professionals from area high schools, colleges and universities to help families of college-bound students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the federally required form for students seeking financial aid, including grants, loans, and work-study

The event is open to any college-bound student interested in completing the FAFSA, not just incoming UNT students. Individuals interested in participating can pre-register at http://collegegoalsundaytexas.org. Pre-registering is recommended, but not required; everyone who pre-registers will be entered into a drawing for a $250 book voucher.

For further information and additional locations, visit the College Goal Sunday website or contact UNT Student Financial Aid and Scholarships at 940-565-2302.

UNT’s deadline for Fall 2012 admission is March 1. For more information on applying to UNT, visit the UNT Admission Basics website. The deadline for FAFSA submission to UNT is March 31. For more information on financial aid available at UNT, visit the UNT Financial Aid website.
