ONLINE FINANCIAL AID SESSIONS:

 

Thinking about your family's future higher education? Now is a good time to learn more about Financial Aid & Higher Education Financing

As we look to a brighter future, FAME is here to help and provide information to families and students so you can be more prepared when things return to some sense of normal.

 

Earning a degree or certificate is an important financial and personal investment. But many students and families wonder how to navigate the financial aid process and pay for college.

·     Types of financial aid and tools for comparing financial aid offers

·     Strategies to minimize college costs

·     Impact of current events on the financial aid process

 

These sessions will be offered via Zoom webinar and provide the same content as our regular in-person sessions. The webinars will be held:
