WHAT: In its effort to encourage and assist students with the college-going process, Bell Gardens High School will provide free, one-on-one professional financial aid help for students parents and community members at two Cash for College workshops. Staff will help families complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the California Dream Act application.

Students should bring the following financial documents: federal income tax returns filed in 2015 for themselves and their parents, W-2 forms or records of earnings for themselves and their parents and current bank statements, and records of stocks, bonds or other investments. If 2015 taxes have not yet been filed, student and parents should bring 2014 tax returns.
