College Goal FAF$A Events
Currently 73, high schools throughout the state have signed up to host a College Goal FAF$A event on their campuses this school year. If you haven't registered your event with the ACPE, its not too late! The following form can be used to register your event. Once registered, your event will be posted on the volunteer calendar and your school will receive FAFSA materials to help support your event.
The materials include FAFSA flyers for each high school senior to take one home and share with their parents. These flyers are great for promoting the FAFSA and what students/parents need to fill out a FAFSA form. Counselors will also receive FAFSA posters to put up around campus, and write-in the date and time of their FAFSA completion workshop(s). This year's flyers, posters and stickers were designed by Jansen Van Mallari, from Millennium High School. Jansen won the Commission's College Goal FAF$A design contest and will receive $500 to help pay for his college courses. He is currently the president of his high school's DECA chapter and plans to study marketing or management.
