Ivy Tech in Warsaw offering free FAFSA filing help February 26

WARSAW, Ind. - Ivy Tech Community College in Warsaw is offering free FAFSA filing help during College Goal Sunday this weekend.

From 2 to 4 p.m., financial aid professionals will be on hand to help college-bound students and their families file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Ivy Tech's Warsaw campus is located at 2545 Silveus Crossing.

Students attending the event could also win one of five $1,000 scholarships by attending. All they have to do is fill out an evaluation form that will then be entered in a drawing for the scholarship money.

The form must be filed by April 15 to be eligible for most financial aid in Indiana.

Students should bring their parent or guardian and the following documents to the February 26 College Goal Sunday event:

  • Completed 2021 IRS 1040 tax returns
