A new Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is here—and so is help to complete it.

Vance-Granville Community College’s Financial Aid Office invites high school students, current college students, families, and adult learners to attend FAFSA Day on Saturday, January 27, from 9 am – 12 pm. Organized by the College Foundation of North Carolina, this is a free event where local college campuses across the state will open their doors to provide one-on-one or small group help with FAFSA completion and submission. The college welcomes anyone in the community seeking financial aid for college, not just current or prospective Vance-Granville students.

There is no requirement to accept any aid offered, but the FAFSA can help you understand your options. By filling out the FAFSA, you could access:

  • Grants and scholarships that you do not have to pay back
  • Work-study programs that allow you to earn money working at the school you attend
  • Student loan options

Completing the FAFSA is more important than ever this year for North Carolina students. It’s the process through which eligible students could receive the Next NC Scholarship, which awards a minimum of $5,000 for those attending a public NC university or at least $3,000 for those attending community college. Students with the greatest need for financial aid could qualify for even more funding to help make paying for college more manageable.

VGCC’s FAFSA Day event will take place at the college’s Main Campus in Henderson. Attendees should check in at the Building 7 front lobby upon arrival.
