News Release Issued Jan. 14, 2015
 
Receive help filing the 2015-2016 FAFSA to meet the Feb. 15 Tennessee Promise Deadline

ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. -- The Tennessee College of Applied Technology Elizabethton will host a free financial aid workshop, titled "College Goal Tennessee 2015," on Thursday, Jan. 22 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Main Campus, 426 Highway 91 North, Elizabethton.

High school students and parents will receive free on-site assistance filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Student Aid) - the federal financial aid form to be eligible to receive any state or Federal assistance. Feb. 15 is the filing deadline for FAFSA for Tennessee Promise.
 
Tennessee Promise is both a scholarship and mentoring program that will begin in the fall of 2015. The scholarship will cover tuition and fees not covered by the Pell grant, the HOPE scholarship, or Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation funds. Students may use the scholarship at any of the state’s 13 community colleges, 27 colleges of applied technology, or other eligible institution offering an associate’s degree program.

A critical component of Tennessee Promise is the individual guidance each participant will receive from a mentor who will assist the student as he or she navigates the college admissions process. In addition, Tennessee Promise participants must complete eight hours of community service per term enrolled, as well as maintain satisfactory academic progress (2.0 GPA) at their institution.

 
What to bring to the Jan. 22 event at TCAT Elizabethton:
--Student and Parent’s 2013 Federal Tax Return;
--2014 Federal Tax Return, other income documentation, or last paystub of 2014; 
--Social Security number;
--Driver's license (if any);
--Student and Parent’s 2014 W-2 Forms or year-end pay stubs and other year-end records of money received;

--2014 business and investment mortgage information, business and farm records, stock, bond, and other investment records; and,
--Your alien registration card (if you are not a U.S. citizen).

If you plan on filling out the FAFSA online at the event, bring your Federal Student Aid PIN number. If you do not have a Federal Student Aid PIN apply at the PIN website before attending the event. This information is helpful to complete the FAFSA but not required to attend.  For more details visit College Goal Tennessee or contact TCAT Elizabethton at 423-543-0070.
