College Goal Sunday Events

College bound Southeast high school students came to locations in Juneau and Sitka last week to participate in College Goal Sunday. The college preparation event was hosted by the University of Alaska Southeast and the Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education to assist students with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid; commonly known as the FAFSA. Approximately 100 high school students braved the Southeast sun to take advantage of the assistance being offered to complete form that is needed when applying for federal aid. Sitka participants were offered short writing workshops to help students prepare for scholarship application essays.

Financial Aid Director Barbara Burnett worked with the media services staff to create three on-demand financial aid seminars, hosted by Gerry VanBooven of the Northwest Education Loan Association. The three video streams are "Paying for College,” "Financial Life 101,” and "Winning Scholarship Strategies." They are available on the Financial Aid webpage.
