Iowa College Goal Sunday

Free FAFSA Assistance Available at Iowa College Goal Sunday Help for College-Bound Students in 43 Locations in February and March

College-bound students can receive free help preparing their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at 43 events across the state in February and March. Volunteers will help students and families fill out FAFSAs during Iowa College Goal Sunday, part of the national College Goal Sunday program.

The main focus of Iowa College Goal Sunday is to help first-generation and low-income students find the funds they need to attend college, but all students can benefit from free help with the FAFSA. The FAFSA is a free form that may be completed without professional assistance via paper or electronic forms provided by the U.S. Department of Education.
