Gila Community College is presenting a free College Financial Aid Workshop on Wednesday, July 16 at 6 p.m. at the GCC Gila Pueblo Campus in Globe in room 522.

This workshop is for anyone planning to attend college and their parents or guardians. Everyone is invited regardless of what college the student will be attending. The workshop’s purpose is to provide a brief overview of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and application process. Understanding the financial and enrollment processes reduces the stress of college financial planning. FAFSA, the United States Department of Education’s application for Pell Grant funding, is the fundamental component of a comprehensive financial aid package. The presentation will cover the submission of the FAFSA application and how the Department of Education determines individual financial awards based on need. Additionally, the workshop will briefly discuss the admissions process at GCC.

Other presenters include Workforce Investment Act, WIA Youth Program of Gila and Pinal Counties and Pinal Mountain Foundation for Higher Education.

The GCC Gila Pueblo Campus is located at 8274 South Six Shooter Canyon Road in Globe. If you have questions call 928.425.8481. Student success is the number one priority at GCC.
