"College Goal Sunday" Helps High School Students, Parents Apply for Financial Aid

High school students and parents throughout the state were able to get some help in applying for financial aid for college.

College Goal Sunday is a statewide program to help high school students and their parents fill out the free application for federal student aid.

That's the standard form used to apply for state.. federal.. and school financial help.

About 140 people took advantage of the free program Sunday afternoon at Chippewa Valley Technical College.

Volunteers were on-hand to answer questions and give advice to students and parents filling out the forms.

"It can be intimidating, confusing and difficult, and that's exactly why we're here," said volunteer and UW-Eau Claire Financial Aid Director Kathy Sahlhoff. "We want to help people get through it."

If you missed Sunday's session, Sahlhoff says you can call the financial aid offices at UW-Eau Claire, UW-River Falls, UW-Stout or CVTC with questions.
