FAFSA Workshops for Help with Financial Aid Application

Applying for financial aid for education beyond high school can be confusing, especially with the paperwork that is required for students seeking any federal or New Jersey aid, grants and/or loans, and certain scholarships.

Rowan College of South Jersey-Cumberland Campus will host free two-hour moderated workshops to help families get the help they need in completing the 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the form that is required to apply for financial assistance programs.

Each of the Thursday evening workshops mobilizes financial aid professionals who are eager to help families take the first step in preparing students to attend college. Knowledgeable English- and Spanish-speaking specialists will be available to assist those in attendance.

The free workshops will be offered in October, November and December. All workshops take place 5 to 7 p.m. in Room ASL-4, located in the Academic Building, 3322 College Drive. The workshop dates are October 3, 10, 17 and 24; November 7, 14 and 21; December 5 and 12.

Those attending a workshop should bring parents/student financial documents (federal income tax returns, W-2s, and other records of income such as social security benefits, child support, etc.) In addition, a FSA ID ( for parent and student is required to sign electronically. For more information, call 856-691-8600, ext. 1336.
