LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Financial aid experts are offering help for Indiana families who need to file their (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) better known as FAFSA.

Most colleges in Indiana including Purdue have a priority filing date of March 1st.

Students can get the help they need this Sunday at 2 p.m. at Ivy Tech Lafayette. College Goal Sunday is hosting the event.

Students who want any form of loans, scholarships or grants must file a FAFSA.

The co-chair of College Goal Sunday says the form is perceived as complex and confusing, but fill it out and you might be surprised to see the type of financial aid you'll receive.

"Families talk themselves out of filing it because they say 'I'm just not going to get aid' and many times they do get aid when they didn't think they were going to," said the co-chair of College Goal Sunday Bill Wozniak.

Make sure to bring your tax returns and W2's.

You also need to create a Federal Student Aid (FSA) username and password.

The link to that is available here.
