The Penn Highlands Community College Blair Center will hold Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Workshops in early 2019 to help students and their families prepare for the upcoming academic year. FAFSA Workshop dates include:

  • Monday, January 28, 5-7pm
  • Tuesday, February 19, 5-7pm

FAFSA Workshops are designed to help families complete the FAFSA for the 2019-2020 academic year. Staff will be available to assist in all phases of the application process, even if you have already completed the FAFSA on your own and want to review it to make sure you have completed it properly.

These workshops are open to current students and the general public. Prospective, former, and future students may participate and take advantage of these sessions.

When attending, please bring completed 2017 tax forms (student and parent if applicable), recent bank statements (student and parent if applicable), recent investment records (parent and student if applicable), and records of untaxed income (if applicable). Please have your social security number or alien registration number (if not a U.S. citizen).

Students and parents are encouraged to create a FSA ID prior to attending. The FSA ID is used to access certain U.S. Department of Education websites and to electronically sign your FAFSA and other documents. To create an FSA ID, please visit https://fsaid.ed.gov.
