Important Dates

College Goal Wisconsin
College Goal Wisconsin helps students put their hands on money for college by accessing federal and state financial aid. The statewide program is designed to assist students and families in the timely completion of their Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA). For the fall of 2020, College Goal Wisconsin will carry out its mission by hosting six virtual 2021-2022 FAFSA completion events, beginning on October 7. The FAFSA completion events will connect students and families with FAFSA experts to guide them through the FAFSA-completion process.

During the event, participants will view a video introducing them to the financial aid process, after which volunteers will be available virtually to field their questions as they complete their FAFSAs. Each session will begin at 6:00 p.m., and should wrap up by around 7:30 p.m. Volunteers will receive a how-to guide in coming weeks with additional information.
