The FAFSA - Your #1 Step for Help Paying for College & Training

The FAFSA is the first and most important step for federal, state, and even some private financial aid. You can get free help filling out the form through College Goal Alaska. Events will take place January 1- April 30, 2016. Click on the map to the right to find the site nearest you, or check back later as more sites are added.


The FAFSA is used for many forms of aid, from grants to loans to work-study. It's even the application for the Alaska Performance Scholarship. College Goal Alaska provides on-site expert assistance with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Financial aid professionals from Alaska's higher education institutions and the Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education will join other volunteers in key locations statewide to help Alaska's students complete the paperwork.
