Financial Aid Assistance to be Offered at ECC

Financial Aid Assistance to be Offered at ECC

September 12, 2016 |


On select Thursday evenings during this Fall semester, East Central College will be holding FAFSA Nights. These public sessions will assist students and their families in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is an online form where students who will be attending college apply for financial aid. Filling out the form is a requirement for any student that needs financial aid for the coming school year.

The sessions will be held in Buescher Hall, Room 182 from 5 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. on October 6 and 20, November 3 and 17 and December 1.

Those attending the sessions need to bring a Social Security Number, driver’s license or government issued ID, W-2 forms and records of other income and a 2015 Federal Income Tax Return of both the student and the parent.

Other important documentation includes untaxed income records, veteran’s non-education benefit records, child support received and/or paid, worker’s compensation and any investment records. Those who are not U.S. citizens should bring an alien registration or permanent resident card.

Those who are unable to attend these sessions can also receive assistance during normal business hours at the Union and Rolla campuses. It is important to note that anyone wanting to attend this event is not required to enroll at ECC; FAFSA Nights were designed as a public service.
