WINTERVILLE—The Pitt Community College Financial Aid Office will host a FAFSA Drive-In event May 18 to assist current and prospective students with completing Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) forms for the 2024 Fall Semester.

PCC Financial Aid Director Lee Bray says the event will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Craig F. Goess Student Center’s rear parking lot (closest to Sam’s Club). It’s an opportunity, she said, for students to complete FAFSAs with free, one-on-one assistance from financial aid specialists without ever having to leave their vehicles.

“The FAFSA is the first step to free or affordable college for North Carolina students,” Bray said. “I would encourage all college students to complete it, whether they think they are eligible for aid or not. A number of programs offering educational funding rely on FAFSA completion, and high school seniors who complete FAFSAs are 84% more likely to attend college, according to the National College Access Network.”

To participate in the FAFSA Drive-In, Bray said students and parents must visit https://studentaid.gov to secure a federal student aid (FSA) ID. They are also encouraged to register for the event and bring the following items:

  • Charged laptop/mobile device
  • Parent and student FSA ID and login information
  • Parent and student Social Security numbers
  • Driver’s license (if applicable)
  • 2021 tax returns (if attending Summer 2024 Semester)
  • 2022 tax returns (if attending Fall 2024 Semester)
  • Parents’ tax returns (for dependent students)
