Coastal Compass is gearing up for FAFSA Saturdays, set to take place every Saturday in February. Students can attend to receive step-by-step assistance with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA.

The FAFSA is a tool used to determine students’ eligibility to receive financial aid. All students who plan to enroll in college are encouraged to fill out an application. The application includes questions on demographic and financial information. Coastal Compass recommends students bring a copy of their 2014 Federal Tax Return and W-2(s) or their parent’s 2014 Federal Tax Return and W-2s.
Workshops will be open to students from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays during February. Representatives from area schools including Texas A&M Corpus Christi, Del Mar College, Texas A&M Kingsville and Coastal Bend College will be on-site to guide students through FAFSA applications and answer admissions questions.

For more information on FAFSA Saturdays, please contact Coastal Compass at 361-906-0703 or info@coastalcompass.org.
