It will take more than good luck and best intentions to pay for college. You need a plan of action, and it should include College Goal Wisconsin!

College Goal Wisconsin is affiliated with a national event that provides free information and assistance to families who need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) the federally required form for students seeking financial aid, such as grants and loans. Completing the FAFSA is the first and most important step in qualifying for aid.

In Wisconsin, College Goal Wisconsin will take place on the following dates:

 In person event dates are:  

  • Monday evenings: January 8, 22, 29 
  • Tuesday evenings: January 9, 16, 23, 30
  • Wednesday evenings: January 10, 17, 24, 31
  • Thursday evenings: January 11, 18, 25, February 1

All events begin at 6 p.m. 

If possible, students who must complete the FAFSA as a dependent should attend the event with a parent or guardian. If a parent can’t attend, the student can attend on their own.  Independent students should bring their own income and asset information.

You will need the following items to complete your 2024-25 FAFSA. If you are considered a dependent student for financial aid purposes, you will also need these items for your parent(s).

  • 2022 Federal Tax Return and W2s.
  • 2022 Untaxed Income Records, such as child support or veteran’s non-education benefits
  • Information on savings, investments, business assets and farm assets (if applicable)
  • Driver’s License (if you have one)
  • Cell phone (if you have one)
  • Social Security Number
  • Alien Registration Card or Permanent Resident Card (if you are not a U.S. citizen)
  • Date of birth for parents
  • Month and year of parents’ marriage, divorce, or separation

It is highly recommended that a dependent student attend the event with a parent so the FAFSA can be submitted that evening.


You can attend a College Goal Wisconsin event to receive assistance completing the FAFSA. If you attend and complete the online evaluation, the student can enter a scholarship drawing.  You could win a one-time scholarship to help with your college expenses. You can’t win if you don’t participate!
