POLSON — Help is available for all Montana students to complete and file their Free Application for Federal Student Aid at College Goal Montana on Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 3 and 4 in the Polson High School library. Volunteers will be available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days, and additionally from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 3.

Filling out a FAFSA is a crucial step in the process of securing federal and institutional aid to help pay for postsecondary education. Volunteers at the local event dedicate their time to perform duties ranging from greeting and registering families, to providing advice to families completing the FAFSA. 

In addition to providing one-on-one support at our local College Goal Montana event, this year’s College Goal Montana will feature short videos to help students and families complete their FAFSA. Videos can be found at SmartAboutCollege.org. 

Students who file their FAFSA at College Goal Montana and complete a short, online survey will also be entered into a random drawing for a $500 scholarship.

Remember, this help is free of charge. Students from all area high schools are welcome to attend. 

A pre-FAFSA financial aid presentation was held in the Polson High School auditorium at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21 to explain the federal financial aid process and help students and parents prepare for submitting the FAFSA at College Goal Montana. 

For more information, Emily Johnson, guidance counselor at Polson High School or visit SmartAboutCollege.org.
