 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.

According to 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.
