Article posted on January 22, 2007

Senator John H. Eichelberger, Jr. is pleased to announce that copies of the 2007-2008 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the FAFSA on the Web Worksheets are available from his district office. The office, which is located at 309 Allegheny Street Hollidaysburg, Pa 17022, is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday thru Friday and can be reached by phone at 814.695.8386.Senator Eichelberger encourages families stop by his office and get a copy of the web work sheet, which allows them to complete the form electronically. “Using the web worksheets and completing the forms on line can help eliminate errors.” says Eichelberger. Anyone interested in this method can visit EducationPlanner.org, PHEAA’s award-winning college planning Website, or at http://fafsa.ed.gov

The FAFSA is the form that determines eligibility for almost all types of federal, state and institutional student aid, including the Pennsylvania State Grant. Students and parents (in single parent households, the parent the student lives with most) will need to complete the form. Families are encouraged to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1 to ensure that all student aid deadlines are met. Tax information is required from students and parents so families should either file their taxes prior to completing the FAFSA or submit their FAFSA based on 2006 estimated tax information.

PHEAA Regional Directors will be offering a series of free FAFSA Completion Workshops throughout the Commonwealth from January through March. For a complete list of FAFSA Workshops, visit PHEAA.org, click on “Plan For College” and then click on “Complete the FAFSA” and “Locations & Registration” in the left-hand navigation bar.
