College Financial Aid Workshop

Am I eligible for financial aid?  How much will I get?  From what sources?  How much of my aid will be loans?  How do I pay costs not covered by financial aid?  Will I get a Scholarship?  The answer to these questions will determine whether a particular college is affordable and suitable for consideration.

This 90-minute workshop will explore these and other important details about college financial aid.  Topics include:
