Financing College for Undergraduate and Graduate Studies

February 15, 2013 5:05 pm Financial Aid, Student Affairs, Students

This spring, the Office of Financial Aid will host a series of workshops and seminars aimed at helping students finance their academic career. The workshops are part of an effort to help students stay in school and ultimately graduate with the least amount of debt.

The “Financial Aid 101” workshop will cover everything students need to know about when and how to file for FAFSA, TAP, scholarships, and work-study. Presenters will go over some of the most common mistakes students make when filing for aid.

“How to Apply for Federal Direct Loans and/or a Private Loan” is a seminar on loan eligibility, borrower responsibilities, and loan repayment options.

There will also be a seminar for prospective and current graduate students on funding their graduate studies.

All workshops and seminars will be held in Carman Hall, Rm. 126. The schedule is as follows:
