New Cash for College Workshops Added With Extended Hours

Appointments are not required, bilingual assistance is available!

DECEMBER 15, 2017--There is still time for high school seniors and their parents to apply for financial aid for college. The Central Coast Cal-SOAP office will hold several Cash for College workshops in Room A-103 on the Santa Maria campus during the month of December.

“Our goal is to have a 90% completion rate for financial aid applications,” said Cal-SOAP director Diana Perez. “We will be making calls to encourage students and their parents to attend these workshops during the student’s winter break to get their applications done early and quickly.”

Students and parents can drop in anytime from 1-7 p.m. to complete the FAFSA or California Dream Act application. The process takes about one hour to complete. Appointments are not required, and bilingual assistance is available.

There are a few items parents and students will need to bring: social security numbers, permanent resident or DACA card numbers (if applicable) and a completed 2016 tax packet.

Parking will be free during the workshops. Parents and students can park in Lot 4 next to building A on the campus. Lot 4 is located next to entrance 1 on south Bradley.

There are more Cash for College workshops scheduled throughout 2018. For information about the local workshops, email Diana Perez at dperez@hancockcollege.edu, or call the Central Coast Cal-SOAP office at 1-805-922-6966, ext. 3710, or toll free 1-866-DIAL AHC (342-5242), ext. 3710.
