The computer lab in Tusculum College’s Virginia Hall was busy Sunday afternoon as the College hosted College Goal Sunday, an event that provided help in filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form required for students at any college or university who apply for federal financial aid.
A team of Tusculum College Admission and Financial Aid staffers, along with volunteers from other departments of the College, helped a total of 15 families complete their FAFSAs.
Some FAFSAs were submitted on the spot via the Internet. Students planning to attend any College were welcomed during the two-hour event. Originally scheduled for Feb. 18, the event was delayed by one week because of bad weather on the 18th, though some families came on the 18th despite the closure and were given FAFSA help by College staffers who had come by just in case someone showed up
