NORMAL -- Free financial aid
workshops are scheduled at Heartland Community College on Feb. 21.
Designed to assist students who will begin their college experience
in 2009-10, the workshops will be offered at 10 and 11 a.m. in the
Workforce Development Center, located on Heartland's main campus at
1500 W. Raab Road in Normal. No preregistration is required.
At the workshop, college-bound students and their parents will
complete the online 2009-10 Free Application for Federal Student
Aid. Experienced financial aid officers will be on hand to provide
one-on-one assistance to each family completing the FAFSA on the
Web. Students and parents are encouraged to bring their completed
2008 federal income tax returns, if available, or all 2008 W-2 forms
and verification of sources of untaxed income received during the
2008 calendar year.
The workshops are part of the College Awareness and Preparation
project -- an initiative made possible by the Illinois Student
Assistance Commission, the Illinois Association of Student Financial
Aid Administrators and the Illinois Association for College
Admissions Counseling, along with a cooperative effort between
Heartland and Illinois State University
