Need assistance with financial aid forms? Visit Alfred State on Feb. 9 for SUNY Financial Aid Day

Alfred State is participating in SUNY Financial Aid Day, Saturday, Feb. 9. beginning at 9 a.m. in the EJ Brown Business Building, Room 414, on the Alfred campus.

SUNY Financial Aid Day is held annually to help prospective students and families understand the financial aid process and give them assistance with filing the financial aid application and understanding the types of aid available and the award process.

Staff from Alfred State’s Office of Student Records and Financial Services will be on hand to help students complete and electronically submit the 2013-14 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which is required for all financial aid, including New York state assistance. This event is open to all prospective college students, not just those attending or planning on attending Alfred State.

Anyone interested in attending is urged to register in advance online or by calling 1-800-342-3811 to receive a list of information to bring with them. Students are also encouraged to obtain the following items prior to attending SUNY Financial Aid Day: a Federal PIN number at www.pin.ed.gov (allow 1-3 business days for receipt); driver's license; alien registration card (non-U.S. citizens); bank statements and investment information; FAFSA PIN number; Social Security numbers; 2012 Federal Income Tax return (or estimated); W-2 forms or other records of income earned for 2012; and 2012 untaxed income information.
