Ivy Tech Community College to Host Several FAFSA Workshops to Assist Students with the 2024-25 FAFSA Form

TERRE HAUTE | GREENCASTLE, Ind. – Ivy Tech Terre Haute is pleased to offer a series of workshops designed to assist students and their families with completing the new 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The workshops will be held throughout the month of February and beginning of March, providing support to those navigating the financial aid application process.

The workshops are open to all West Central Indiana high school students, current Ivy Tech students, and prospective students who need assistance with the FAFSA application process. Financial aid experts will be on hand to answer questions, provide guidance on completing the form accurately, and offer insights into alternative funding options.

Students who are already enrolled or are planning to attend college during the 2024-25 academic year are strongly encouraged to complete the FAFSA. In Indiana, all high school seniors are required by law to complete the FAFSA or submit an opt-out waiver by April 15, 2024, in order to graduate high school. Additionally, students who are eligible to receive the 21st Century Scholarship must complete the FAFSA to claim their award.

"We understand that the FAFSA process can be overwhelming for many students, and our goal is to make it as accessible and straightforward as possible," said Julie Wonderlin, director of financial aid at Ivy Tech Terre Haute. "These workshops are designed to provide personalized support and ensure that every student understands their financial options when pursuing higher education, including the use of grants and loans.”

Attendees should bring their Social Security number, 2022 Federal Tax Return documents, W-2 forms, and other income/benefit information to the event. Anyone who is required to provide information on the FAFSA form (you, your biological or adoptive parents, your parent’s spouse, your spouse – as applicable) will need a StudentAid.gov account before accessing and completing their section of the online form. To create your StudentAid.gov account, visit studentaid.gov/fsa-id and be sure to enter your name and Social Security number exactly as they appear on your Social Security card.
