What is College Goal NY?

College Goal NY is a collaborative public service project of the New York State Financial Aid Administrators Association (NYSFAAA) and the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC). College Goal NY is comprised of numerous FAFSA completion events set in targeted areas throughout New York State which have a history of high financial need and submit a disproportionately small number of online FAFSA applications.

College Goal NY is part of a volunteer program, College Goal SundaySM, with a focus on helping low-income, first-generation families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the form necessary to qualify for many student aid programs to pay college expenses.

College Goal Sunday is owned and managed by USA Funds, which provides grants to support College Goal Sunday events nationwide. 

In 2012,  39 states and the District of Columbia conducted College Goal Sunday events, helping more than 39,000 students and parents complete and file the FAFSA.
