College planning workshop

January 25, 2007

College Goal Sunday will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. Feb. 11 at Eaton Hall, Room 1005 on the Kansas University campus, 1520 W. 15th St., Lawrence, for students and parents to find out what types of financial aid are available for college.

Participants will get personal assistance in filling out the paperwork that schools use to determine how much financial aid each student should receive. At the conclusion of the event, there will be a drawing for two $500 scholarships.

Those planning to attend are asked to bring 2006 tax returns; W-2 forms; and a personal identification number for Free Application For Student Aid. Apply for a PIN at www.pin.ed.gov.

If taxes are not yet completed, participants should bring the last paycheck received in December 2006 showing year-to-date earnings for student and parents; 2005 tax forms; and 2006 statements of interest earned.
