Financial Aid Nights

Hosted at local high schools

Need help paying for college?

Join us at a local high school for Financial Aid Night 

If you are a senior in High School or a parent looking for more info on how to cover the cost of attending college, come to a Financial Aid night and learn more about the financial aid process. We will go over the types of the financial aid available and how to apply for aid.

High School seniors, along with current college students, will also receive free assistance in filling out the FAFSA (you should fill this out each year). Need-based federal and state aid is awarded based on information from the FAFSA.

A 2015 Edvisors.com study found that students who file the FAFSA in the first three months received more than double the grant money as those who file later.
