Millikin, Richland team up for FAFSA help

Posted:

Millikin University teamed up with Richland Community College to raise awareness about financial aid and answer any questions people may have. Saturday the schools are hosting an event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Richland extension in Fairview Plaza in Decatur. That's where administrators can help anyone file their FAFSA. Be sure to bring any tax information. But most importantly, administrators said it's important to file paperwork as soon as possible because the deadline approaches quickly.

"We want to make sure our students complete the FAFSA as early as possible, so they can do that with estimated figures," said Chilwana Thompson Assistant Director of Millikin University's Student Service Center. "They don't have to wait for their tax returns to be completed."

If people miss Saturday's event, not to worry. Those interested can set up an appointment at Millikin University's Student Service Center. They're offering assistance every Friday in February.
