In an effort to assist students, especially first-generation college students, to begin the process of seeking financial aid, the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce and the P-16+ Education Partnership will host College Goal Week October 17-20 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at various locations in San Angelo. All San Angelo and area high schools students and their parents are invited to attend.

College Goal Week will pull together volunteers and financial aid professionals to help families of college-bound students complete the free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the federally required form for students seeking financial aid, including grants, loans and work-study.

By participating in one of these free events, families of college-bound students will take an important step toward applying for the financial resources necessary to make college a reality. Students and parents may attend any of the following events:
