United Way of Porter County FAFSA Fridays Helps High School Seniors Ready for College


United Way of Porter County has partnered with three community partners to provide free FAFSA filing services now through April 13, 2018.

Known as FAFSA Fridays, the program offers services at two Porter County locations on the second Friday of each month now through April 2018.

“We are grateful to our partners for joining us in this effort,” said Kim Olesker, president & CEO of United Way of Porter County. “As a new college-bound family, it is sometimes hard to navigate all the paperwork necessary to start of the college experience right. We wanted to help make this financial assistance step easier for everyone.”

This opportunity is available to all seeking assistance to file their college financial aid paperwork. Participation is by appointment only. Participants should bring a hard copy of their most recent income tax information, including W2, and the student's social security number with them to the appointment.

The program is made possible through a partnership with Valparaiso University, Neighbors’ Educational Opportunities and Indiana Tech.

Appointments are approximately 30 minutes long and available from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Program locations are United Way of Porter County in Valparaiso and Neighbors’ Educational Opportunities in Portage. For more information about FAFSA Fridays and to make an appointment, visit UnitedWayPC.org/FAFSA.
