The primary purpose of the event is to assist high school seniors who will be attending any college across the nation in accessing information and filling out the Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) to apply for financial aid to make college more affordable.
The event, sponsored by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education, will be held from 9—11 a.m. in the J.S. Mack Library on the BJU campus. A continental brunch will be available for attendees. The library is located near the Wade Hampton Boulevard entrance to BJU.
Throughout February, 43 post-secondary institutions and high schools across the state will host events to assist students and their families/guardians with the second step of the college application process, filling out the Free Application for Student Financial Aid.
College Goal South Carolina offers an opportunity for all college bound students and their families/guardians to receive free one-on-one assistance with completing the FAFSA as well as guidance on navigating financial aid. Dedicated and knowledgeable financial aid personnel from local colleges along with community volunteers and business leaders assist in this state-wide event.
