The Alfred State Office of Student Records and Financial Services will participate in the annual SUNY Financial Aid Day, Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014, beginning at 9 a.m., in the EJ Brown Business Building, room 414, on the Alfred campus.

The Student Records and Financial Services staff will assist students and their guests in completing and submitting the 2014-15 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) electronically. The FAFSA is required for all financial aid, including New York State assistance. The Student Records and Financial Services Office staff will also be available to answer any questions regarding the financial aid process.

Students/parents can register by going to www.suny.edu/studentevents or by calling 1-800-342-3811. This workshop is open to all prospective college students and their families, including those who do not plan to attend Alfred State. Registrants will receive an email listing necessary information, including what materials students/parents will need to bring with them, building location details, and parking directions.

Prior to SUNY Financial Aid Day, participants are encouraged to obtain: a Federal PIN number at www.pin.ed.gov (allow 1-3 business days for receipt); driver's licenses; alien registration card (for non-U.S. citizens); bank statements and investment information; FAFSA PIN number; Social Security numbers; 2013 Federal Income Tax return (or estimated); W-2 forms or other records of income earned for 2013; and 2013 untaxed income information.

SUNY's Statewide Student Financial Aid Days are offered as a service to all prospective college students and their families. The programs are designed to answer questions and provide assistance regarding the financial aid application, types of aid available, and the award process.

Forty-six programs will be offered across New York State. Students and parents should feel free to attend the program closest to where they live.
