South Texas College will hold its annual Super Saturday event at its three main campuses; Starr, Pecan and Mid-Valley on Feb. 11 from 9 am to 2 pm.
The event will be a one stop shop for students to complete their Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) or their Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) to avoid long lines or delays.
“This event is about promoting early FAFSA and TASFA submission for 2017-2018. We are partnering with RGV Focus and other higher education institutions so students can begin working on their FAFSA or TASFA now instead of waiting until later,” said Juan Miguel Galvan, STC Director of Student Financial Services.
“Students just have to stop by with the required income information, and we help them with the rest. We will have knowledgeable staff available to help at all three campuses,” Galvan said. “The good thing is that for 2017-2018, students can report income information from two years prior, meaning they can use the 2015 tax return to complete the application. In the past, they would have had to wait for their parents to file their most current tax return before applying.”
