RCC Invites Students to Participate in FAFSA Day Oct. 28

ASHEBORO (October 6, 2017)

Randolph Community College will be participating in FAFSA Day for the 2018-2019 academic year on Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017.

On FAFSA Day, college financial aid officers and other volunteers will help students complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) forms over the internet. FAFSA Day is a program offered by College Foundation of North Carolina and the North Carolina Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators each year.

The program is open to students who plan to attend college in the 2018-19 academic year. RCC’s event will be held from 9 a.m.-noon, Oct. 28, in Rooms 106 and 108 of the Continuing Education and Industrial Center on the Asheboro Campus. The event is free and students should register for FAFSA Day by calling the College Foundation of North Carolina toll free at 1-866-866-CFNC or by going to http://www.cfnc.org/FAFSAday.

Participants should bring their completed 2016 federal 1040 tax forms and W-2 forms (dependent students should bring a copy of their parents’ completed 2016 federal 1040 tax forms and W-2 forms). In addition to tax information, each student and one parent of a dependent should obtain a FSA ID prior to FAFSA Day from the U.S. Department of Education at https://fsaid.ed.gov/.

It is helpful (though not required) for attendees to complete as much of the 2018-19 FAFSA on the Web Worksheet as possible and then bring it with them on FAFSA Day.

RCC’s Continuing Education and Industrial Center is located at 413 Industrial Park Avenue.
