Community College Offering Financial Aid Education Event



Jan. 30, 2014

Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) wants to make sure that anyone who wants to go to college, can afford to do it.

The college is hosting an event in February called "Super FAFSA," which is aimed at teaching people about the free application for federal student aid.

The program is open to high school students, parents, or adults who want to attend college. You'll learn about federal and state aid, as well as scholarships.

They say they want to help increase the number of people who have access to higher education.

"If you always had a dream to attend college, but you don't know how to pay for it, attend Super FAFSA,” Media Relations Manager Anita Showers said. “It's the perfect place to learn all about federal aid, state aid, scholarships, and how to go about pursuing that financial aid for college."

The "Super FAFSA" event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at PVCC on Saturday, February 8th. The event is open to the public.
