IUK to host college admissions, financial aid events

Indiana University Kokomo is hosting two events Feb. 23 to prepare incoming and current college students for what’s ahead.

IUK admissions specialists will help future students and their parents navigate the college admissions process during the “Parents’ Roadmap to College: Guide Your Student to Success” program, which will start with a question and answer session at 1:30 p.m. followed by a presentation at 2 p.m. in the Kelley Student Center room 130.

The event includes discussions with admissions, financial aid, career and accessibility services, athletics, academics and advising, campus life, and more. For more information, contact Allison Foust at anfoust@iuk.edu. Parents should RSVP by Feb. 20, at iuk.edu/parent-visit.

Current college students, high school seniors, potential college students and their parents can file their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) during College Goal Sunday. No RSVP is required.

Check in for College Goal Sunday begins at 2 p.m. in Alumni Hall, and volunteers will direct those attending to computers labs. Financial aid experts will walk through the form line-by-line and answer questions during the session. Students should attend with a parent or guardian, and bring their parents’ 2013 IRS 1040 tax returns, W-2 forms and other 2013 income and benefits information. Students who worked in 2013 should bring their own income information. Those 24 and older may attend alone and should bring their income information.

Vinny Vincent, assistant director of financial aid, said even those not sure if they will go to college during the 2014-15 school year should attend and file their financial aid application before the March 10 deadline.

Students and parents should apply for a U.S. Department of Education Personal Identification Number at www.pin.ed.gov before attending College Goal Sunday.

Additional FAFSA help sessions are planned from 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 24; 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 26; 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 27; 5 to 7 p.m. March 4; 5 to 7 p.m. March 6; and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 10.
