Wednesday, February 24, 2010 • Posted February 24, 2010

The Mobile Go Center is coming to Mason on March 1st! The Mobil Go Center project is an extension of the College For All Texans Campaign’s broad efforts to achieve the goals of Closing the Gaps by 2015. This is a campaign to draw an additional 630,000 Texans into colleges and universities by the year 2015. The Mobile Go Center is an air conditioned trailer with 18 laptop computers and a high speed satellite internet connection. The centers are a way to bring college going materials and person to person help to areas with low college going rates. Personnel, including college financial aid officers, are on board to help students and parents fill out the FAFSA. All you need to do is bring your tax returns and your PIN number.

Mason High School seniors already have their own PIN number, which they created at our GO Get It event held a few weeks ago. Parents also need their own PIN. Go to www.pin.ed.gov to create your PIN number. All you have to do is fill in your social security number, your name and your birth date. If you don’t have access to a computer with internet connection, please come to high school and use our computers.
