What is College Goal Sunday?
College Goal Sunday is a free program to help you and/or your family/friends fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is your financial aid application for college.
On Sunday March 10, beginning at 2:00 p.m., financial aid volunteers will be available HERE at South Arkansas Community College to help you with your financial aid application, with completing the online process and to make sure you get the help you need to apply for financial aid for ANY college.
If interested, volunteers will assist you in applying for the Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarship and other state aid through the ADHE website &/or for SouthArk Scholarships through the Scholarships at SouthArk online application. If you will attend College Goal Sunday, you will get free help with your financial aid application, and walk away from the event knowing you tackled one of the most difficult steps in getting ready for college. We hope you will make plans to attend this important program to help you get ready to go to college.
If you are even thinking about education beyond high school, you will most likely need financial help. College Goal Sunday is the perfect place to get the help you will need to complete your financial aid application.
