East Carolina University will host a FAFSA Day from 9 a.m. to noon Feb. 18 in Joyner Library.
Staff from ECU, Pitt Community College and Miller-Motte College will be on hand to help students and families complete the federal application for financial aid. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine eligibility for most financial aid programs to assist in the cost of higher education.
FAFSA events will be held at more than 300 locations across the state, concluding a week of attention to financial aid awareness. North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue proclaimed Financial Aid Awareness Week in North Carolina Feb. 13 through 19, urging students and families to learn more about the process of applying for financial assistance for college.
Registration is recommended. To register or for more information, visit http://www.cfnc.org/fafsaday or call 1-866-866-CFNC (2362).
Another option for students and parents with a few questions on completing the FAFSA is the FAFSA Phone-In offered every Tuesday night in February, including the night of February 14 during Financial Aid Awareness Week.
Financial aid specialists and experts will be available to answer specific FAFSA questions on the toll-free number, 1-866-866-CFNC (2362), between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Financial Aid Awareness Week is sponsored by the N.C. Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators. The Association also joins College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC) and the State Employees’ Credit Union to make FAFSA Day available.
