Cresson, Pa. — Filing for financial aid can be a challenge for families of college-bound students, and the experts at Mount Aloysius College have scheduled an evening session to help take the mystery out of the process.  Parents and students are warmly invited.  The FAFSA Completion Night is slated for Wednesday, November 8th from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.  During this event, families can receive assistance in completing and filing the 2018-2019 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The event will be held in the Main Administration Building, Room 233.

Filing the FAFSA form allows families to be eligible to receive federal aid for college tuition.  FAFSA is the first step in applying for student financial aid.  Many forms of financial aid are need-based.  Students who are not eligible due to economic status, may still be eligible for an unsubsidized Stafford Loan.

More than 94 percent of Mount Aloysius students receive financial aid. The average package for students is more than $10,000. Students also are eligible to receive a variety of institutional grants and scholarships.

Students and parents need to bring a 2016 completed Federal Tax form and individual W-S forms.  They also need to bring documentation of taxed and untaxed income, current balance of cash, savings and checking accounts, net worth of your investments and business and farm values.

Participants are urged to apply for a FSA I.D. at said.ed.gov before the event.  Both student and parents, if applicable, need to apply for an I.D. and sign the FAFSA document electronically.  Mount Aloysius College’s Financial Aid Office reminds prospective students and their families that students and parents must use different email addresses when creating the FSA I.D.

Mount Aloysius College was recently named one of 100 Best Value College’s in the US.  They are also a College of Distinction, A Pennsylvania College of Distinction and three separate academic areas of Mount Aloysius—Business, Education and Nursing—have also earned College of Distinction status.  Mount Aloysius was named one of four colleges deemed “an engine of opportunity” in a White House Report.  Their Nursing Division is ranked sixth in Pennsylvania for NCLEX pass rates among nursing programs that test more than 85 students annually.  Our American Sign Language/English Interpreter program is one of only 13 accredited programs in the nation.

This event is opened to Mount Aloysius students, potential College students and to the public.  To R.S.V.P. for the event, please call (814) 886-6489 or email at financialaid@mtaloy.edu.
