North Idaho College financial aid technicians will assist students in filling out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) during FAFSA Completion Day from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesdays Feb. 23 and March 9 in NIC’s McLain Hall on the main Coeur d’Alene campus. The sessions are free and open to anyone. Information: (208) 769-3368.

North Idaho College and the Idaho State Board of Education will offer assistance on completing the 2011-2012 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the standard form used by most colleges and universities to award financial aid. Financial aid experts will assist individuals from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesdays Feb. 23 and March 9 in McLain Hall on NIC’s main Coeur d’Alene campus.

Students and/or parents should bring their social security number, driver’s license, 2010 W2 forms, 2010 Federal Tax Return (if filed)  and other records of money the student or their parents earned in 2010 (including the student’s and parents’ untaxed income records, current bank statements and investment records).

Assistance will be provided to all individuals regardless of what college or university they are planning to attend. The event will also include door prizes and snacks.

The FAFSA is the first step in the financial aid process. It is used to apply for federal student financial aid, such as Pell Grants, student loans and the Work-Study program. In addition, most colleges use FAFSA information to award their own financial aid.

Additional information is available at the FAFSA website at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ or at the NIC financial aid website at www.nic.edu/financialaid.
