GREENFIELD — Sheryl Bass had heard of the FAFSA before coming to the Education Experience Monday afternoon, but she didn’t realize the Free Application for Federal Student Aid could help send her daughter to college.
Bass’ daughter is a senior at G-C who is planning to study criminal justice next year and has her eye on either Ball State University or IUPUI. Bass said she feels financially prepared to pay for her daughter’s college expenses, but finding out the government might also lend a helping hand was a pleasant surprise.
“I had heard the term, (FAFSA), but I didn’t realize it applied to middle-income people,” she said. “Obviously, it’s very helpful if she can pick up a scholarship or two.”
