Editorial: Get help with college costs


This is a free program, so don’t pass it up. Families must register in advance at You will be informed about what documentation to bring and everything else you need to know.

Financial-aid experts from a number of area colleges will be in Potsdam to help with both FAFSA and the New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application. Students don’t have to be applying to a certain college in order to take part.

Students and families can also get help through an online chat weekdays on, by emailing or by calling 1-800-608-1790 noon to 5 p.m. weekdays.

Don’t let a fear of the FAFSA form keep you from getting the aid that could make your college dream a reality.
