Both events are free and begin at 2 p.m. at their respective locations.
 
College Goal Sunday’s primary goal is to teach students and their parents about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also called FAFSA. College-bound individuals must complete the form to receive federal financial aid, including loans and need-based grants.
 
On College Goal Sunday, educational institutions provide support to help families navigate the online application. Walk-ins are welcome, but registration is encouraged, and can be completed now at ohiocollgegoalsunday.org.
