"How do I pay for school?"The financial aid process can be overwhelming to many families. Today families are concerned more then ever with finding a way to fund their child's higher educational needs. We understand how stressful and confusing this process can be so we are hoping to give you as much information as we can to help you find your way through all the myths and facts that are out there. Unfortunately, counselors are not privy to the unique financial situation of each student, as well as not being financial experts which make us unable to assist you with your personal financial aid process. However, we want to direct you in the best way that we can so we have arranged for a financial aid expert from PHEAA to present two unique seminars for you to attend. The first will be an informational night to help explain the financial aid process and what you can expect from your colleges. The other night will be a workshop to help you with filing your FAFSA forms.
It is highly recommended that you attend our Financial Aid Night Seminars. A financial advisor will walk you through the financial aid process. Our PHEAA Representative will explain what forms must be completed and what documents you will need. This is a FREE seminar and extremely valuable!
