College Goal Kentucky will take place in January.
College Goal Kentucky provides free help in filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is used to apply for local and state financial aid programs. The two locations for our students is Daymar College and Murray State University. Please check our GCHS Guidance calendar for date, location, and time.
What to Bring: Your parent or guardian and their completed 2013 federal tax forms. If tax forms have not been completed, then bring their 2012 federal tax forms and their last paycheck stub from 2013.
Why: The earlier you submit your FAFSA, the better your chances of being eligible for thousands of dollars in student aid. Students who file by mid-January have the best chance of receiving these funds.
