JUNEAU - Alaska's fifth annual College Goal Sunday event will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 8. Juneau's event will take place at the University of Alaska Southeast Student Recreation Center in Auke Bay, off the Back Loop road.
Traditionally offered a week or two after Super Bowl Sunday, College Goal Sunday is a national program designed to help students clear the financial hurdles to higher education, particularly low-income and first-generation college goers.
This year, 24 sites will be participating in the one-day event at which Alaska's financial aid professionals join other volunteers in participating communities across the state. They give line-by-line assistance to families and students as they fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, the universally required financial aid application.
