TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A little bit of help goes a long way, especially when it comes to paying for school!

Ivy Tech Community College hosted "College Goal Sunday" this weekend. The school was one of more than 30 sites in Indiana participating in the program.

Students and parents filled out the Free Application For Federal Student Aid, also known as FAFSA.

Representatives from local universities were on hand to answer questions and make the process easier for students and their families.

"Especially when it's their first year they haven't done the FAFSA application for awhile or ever," said Judy Wonderlin, Director of Financial Aid, "It can be a little bit discouraging and a little bit cumbersome thinking about it. So we're there to help make it seem easier."

The FAFSA deadline is April 15th.

If you couldn't make it to the event, Wonderlin says you can still get help by visiting your school's financial aid office.
