CGFC Help with the FAFSA

As we prepare for the Countdown to College (C2C) and FAFSA completion and RDS, we want to make sure that students/parents are able to get the help they need to complete the FAFSA.
We have a short interest form that students or parents can fill out indicating their interest in receiving Financial Aid information or help in completing the FAFSA form.  This is a FREE service; there is no fee or service charge.  Please share this FAFSA Student Interest link with interested students and parents at your school. 
The data obtained will be sent to local county colleges and universities, so that they can follow up with information about local FAFSA Day events and offers of FAFSA completion assistance.
You can also check out the CFNC site with the NC map to find FAFSA completion services near your school.  Click on the purple dots to find colleges and universities participating in FAFSA Day or other FAFSA completion events:
