College Financial Aid Workshop

  • VIMSIA Science Pod

From: Elizabeth Elger <eelger@vimsia.org>
I will be hosting a financial aid workshop in the Science Pod on Tuesday, January 19 from 6:00-7:00pm.  We will be discussing the FAFSA and CSS Profile forms and how best to advocate for the top financial aid awards.  Mrs. Debra Lowry, parent of PGIA alumna Erika Lowry, will be joining us to offer advice and share her experiences with the financial aid process.

The FAFSA is due to all schools on February 1, regardless of admission.  Even if your student hasn't yet applied to the school (but plans on it), you must submit the forms by February 1.  Visit the following link for a step-by-step guide to completing the FAFSA:  https://www.edvisors.com/fafsa/forms/tutorial/

Not all schools require the CSS Profile.  Research what your student's schools need before completing this form.  I look forward to seeing each of you (students and parents) on January 19.
