The Alfred State Office of Student Records and Financial Services will participate in the annual SUNY Financial Aid Days, Saturday, Feb. 20, beginning at 9 a.m. in EJ Brown Business Hall, Room 212, on the Alfred campus.

This workshop is open to all prospective college students and their families, including those who do not plan to attend Alfred State. Registrants will receive an email listing necessary information, including what materials students/parents will need to bring with them, building location details, and parking directions.
Prior to SUNY Financial Aid Day, participants are encouraged to obtain: a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) at  (allow one to three business days for the Social Security Administration to verify information); a driver's license; an alien registration card (non-US citizens); bank statements and investment information; Social Security Numbers; a 2015 Federal Income Tax return (or estimated); W-2 forms or other records of income earned for 2015; and 2015 untaxed income information.
SUNY's statewide Student Financial Aid Days are offered as a service to all prospective college students and their families. The programs are designed to answer questions and provide assistance regarding the financial aid application, types of aid available, and the award process. 
Forty-four programs will be offered across New York State. Students and parents should feel free to attend the program closest to where they live.
