Tech to host College Goal Sunday

MONTGOMERY — West Virginia University Institute of Technology (WVU Tech) will be one of 23 host sites for College Goal Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10, in the Engineering Building ELab. Students and parents can receive assistance completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) from Tech’s financial aid staff during the free workshop.

Anyone planning to attend college next fall can participate, including graduating high school seniors, returning college students, or adult students interested in returning to school to earn a degree or certificate.

“WVU Tech in Montgomery is one of several sites throughout the state open to support all students, not just those from the immediate area or those attending Tech or Bridgemont Community and Technical College. We can provide expert assistance, reduce the common errors, and handle those tough circumstances,” explained Michael White, WVU Tech director of financial aid. “If you need assistance with the FAFSA application, we welcome you.”

College Goal Sunday is coordinated by the College Foundation of West Virginia (CFWV), with funding and support from the Lumina Foundation for Education and USA Funds. A full list of site locations, times, items families should bring, and other details is available through CFWV, the state’s college access web portal, located at www.cfwv.com.
