FASFA application assistance for Valley students

February 9, 2013 12:00:00 AM PST
Several financial aid workshops for local students are taking place this month.

The free sessions kicked off Friday.

They're put on by Fresno Unified and Representative Jim Costa. The event offers step-by-step assistance to students and their families filing the FAFSA and DREAM ACT online application.

The paperwork is crucial for many students to get the funding needed for college, but they often fail to do the application correctly.

The workshops are taking place on the 2nd floor of the Manchester Mall in Fresno.
