Who: 7th through 11th graders and their parent(s)/guardians
What: Finding money to finance college is about starting early and understanding how it works. This includes where the money comes from (your pocket, scholarships, merit aid, and financial aid) to how to prepare your application for the maximum return (both $ and college choice). Many people wait until the spring of 11th grade to start thinking about the college application process, but it needs to start earlier to get into your choice of colleges and to find the money to finance it.
This workshop is designed for families of 7th through 11th graders to look at how to prepare your application and strategies to find the money to pay for college. It is highly recommended both students and their parent(s) attend the workshop as this is a family approach to the college application process. As this is a family workshop, the price of the workshop is per family (limit 4).
Tickets: Early Bird Fee: $15 (after fees) until Feb 11
General Fee: $20 (after fees) From Feb 12-Feb 19th
