York Tech to Host FAFSA Fridays to Assist Students
with Federal Aid Process
ROCK HILL, SC — For the third year in a row, York Technical College
is hosting FAFSA Fridays to help students complete their Free
Application for Student Federal Aid.
York Tech will open its doors
to offer one-on-one assistance to prospective students every Friday
for the next four weeks. The college aims to eliminate any confusion,
frustration, incompletion or any other factor that may contribute to a
student delaying, or not finishing the financial aid process.
the Institute for College Access and Success there is widespread
recognition that reducing the length and complexity of the FAFSA can
help more students get the aid they need to attend and complete
college. FAFSA Fridays will help students get the grants, loans,
work-study or any other financial aid assistance they need to pay for
their college education.
“FAFSA Fridays give students and
parents a chance to get one-on-one assistance from a financial aid
expert to ensure that their FAFSA is completed accurately. It also
ensures it is completed in time to meet priority financial aid
deadlines,” said Nikisha Dawkins, Financial Aid Operations Manager.
Last year, nearly 130 students attended the event. York Tech plans to
attract even more students this time around. Those who attend will
receive a free music download gift card. Students will also be
eligible for a drawing, for Beats by Dre headphones, or an Ipod Touch.
