February marks Financial Aid Awareness Month, and Waubonsee Community College has planned a series of free public events to help students learn more about receiving financial aid for the 2014-2015 school year.


Waubonsee financial aid advisers will be on hand for three FAFSA Fairs. The workshops are designed to help students and parents learn how to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Anyone planning to attend should bring a copy of a 2013 W-2 form and/or their 2013 federal income tax return.

The series of FAFSA Fairs will begin from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29, Room 160, on Waubonsee's Aurora Campus, 18 S. River St., Aurora.

Next, the college will host its College Goal Sunday Event/FAFSA Fair from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, in rooms 165 and 175 of the Academic and Professional Center on the Sugar Grove Campus, Route 47 at Waubonsee Drive.

The FAFSA Fair series will conclude with a return to Room 160 at the Aurora Campus from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27.

Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces are invited to learn more about their educational tuition assistance options, as Waubonsee hosts a VA Education Benefits Seminar from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, in Room 106 of the Student Center on the Sugar Grove Campus.
