Fairmont, WV — Pierpont Community and Technical College will offer a series of workshops to assist with the completion of the 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Pierpont’s financial aid specialists will be on hand to answer questions and provide support with the online application. The workshops are free and open to the public.

Upcoming workshops include: Thursday, March 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Robert C. Byrd National Aerospace Education Center in Bridgeport; Tuesday, April 9 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Middletown Commons in White Hall; and Thursday, April 18 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Pierpont’s Advanced Technology Center in Fairmont.

In late 2023, the U.S. Department of Education released changes to the FAFSA form, which is required of students applying for federal grants, work-study funds, and loans. The redesigned ‘Better FAFSA’ offers a streamlined process with the hope of providing more students with access to financial aid, including Federal Pell Grants. To learn more about the changes, visit www.ed.gov/better-fafsa.
