Waipahu Session Aids College Money Search

Help with money for college may be as close as your neighborhood high school.

The Pacific Financial Aid Association and the Hawaii Association for College Admission Counseling plan to offer a free College Goal Sunday session at 1 p.m. Jan. 13 in Waipahu High School cafeteria and at four other Oahu schools that day.

Each session comes with expert advice on how to fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), which is a gateway into private and government scholarship details. The aid applies to most colleges and universities as well as vocational schools throughout the country. CGS sponsors locally are USA Funds, GEAR UP Hawaii and the Hawaii Community Foundation.

Parents and students are advised to bring their 2012 tax return, or if not, the W-2 forms and other income and benefits information.

No advanced reservations are needed. For more information, call Frank Green at 591-2708.
