A full list of site locations, times, items families should bring, and other details is available through the College Foundation of West Virginia (CFWV), the state’s college access web portal, located at www.cfwv.com

Financial aid experts will be on hand to help students and families complete and submit the FAFSA and explore additional financial aid resources that may be available. 

Online pre-registration is recommended, but not required for participation in this free workshop. Anyone planning to attend college next fall can participate, including graduating high school seniors, returning college students, or adult students interested in returning to school to earn a degree or certificate.
