In 2007, Connecticut became a member of a national initiative called College Goal Sunday (CGS). The purpose of this yearly event is to offer students and their parents’ one-on-one, expert advice on how to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and on how to plan for college. CGS is a volunteer, charitable effort to assist low-income families and those who have no college-going tradition in accessing a higher education. Specifically, CGS helps families complete the FAFSA— the application required to qualify for college financial aid nationwide. In addition, valuable information is shared about the benefits of attending college, student support services, areas of study, and different degree programs. The Commission on Equity and Opportunity is proud to be a sponsor of College Goal Sunday.
