Follow Your Dream of Higher Education! Pt. 2 Making Smart Choices

October 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Follow your Dream Follow Your Dream of Higher Education!

Presenter: Mary Gill, Retired Higher Education Administrator

UPDATE: Thanks to all who attended the first presentation. To have a more orderly meeting, the future sessions will not be open to the public. They will be arranged by invitation only with links sent by high schools cosponsoring the workshop.

Mendocino High School, Fort Bragg High School and the Fort Bragg Library invite you to a financial aid presentation by Zoom. There will be time for questions.  Students, parents and all interested people are welcome to join.

 

Session ONE will cover the basics of financial aid.  You will receive an overview of the whole process including the relationship between admissions and financial aid, the types of colleges, financial aid application (FAFSA) rules, hints and help, how your eligibility will be determined, how to know the actual cost of college, what types of aid are available, including an overview of student loans and what to expect as the year goes on.  The session will last approximately one hour and there will be an opportunity for questions at the end of the presentation.

 

Session TWO will help you make smart choices as you consider where to apply for admission by teaching you how to evaluate a college’s financial aid program, estimate your own eligibility, understand the output you get from the financial aid application (FAFSA) and evaluate financial aid offers.  You will also learn how to report special circumstances like job loss, how to use community college attendance to your advantage and hints on cost saving and financial aid survival. The session will last approximately one hour and there will be an opportunity for questions at the end of the presentation.
