College Goal Sunday is Sunday, Feb. 14, a program which occurs in all 50 states, where financial counselors will help you fill out your FAFSA (Free Application for Free Student Aid).

FAFSA 2010-2011 Survival Guide, Part 1

Students can go to Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online and apply. If you apply online, the process is faster.
Also, students and parents can receive assistance in completing the FAFSA online by calling 1-800-801-0576.
Since this is a government website, .gov will be in the web address. Any .com in the web address will charge you money and is a rip-off, and that .com is not associated with the federal government.

Information about filling out the FAFSA on the web

Information about completing the FAFSA can be found here, including the PDF versions of the Dept. of Education's Completing the FAFSA, 2010-2011.
On Friday, I will list more resources in FAFSA 2010-2010 Survival Guide, Part 2
