2015 FAFSA Completion Workshops

The Ohio State University at Marion in coordination with Marion Technical College and the I Can Center of Excellence will hold Financial Aid Information Nights for the 2015-16 award year. These FREE financial aid sessions are for parents and/or students of all income levels. The forms discussed are used at all two-year and four-year colleges and universities. Therefore, you are welcome to attend even if you and/or your child plans to attend a college other than Ohio State Marion or MTC.

This is an opportunity to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with assistance from financial aid professionals. Many two and four-year colleges and universities throughout the U.S. require or strongly encourage filling out the FAFSA. The information you provide on this form becomes the basis for determining eligibility for federal and state grants, work study programs, some scholarships, and subsidized & unsubsidized student loans. Please note, tax returns do not need to be completed to attend the FAFSA Completion Workshop sessions. We can estimate using income amounts for 2014 or your 2013 federal tax returns.

These sessions will be held in the Marion Campus Library computer lab to offer the opportunity to apply online for both the FAFSA and for scholarships. Staff from the Ohio Stte Marion, MTC and I Can Financial Aid Offices will be available to assist students in the process at the January and February sessions.
