Financial Aid Night 

PHEAA continues to receive great interest in Financial Aid Webinars - as a result, we will be offering additional webinars in May on the following dates from 6-7 pm: May 21.

Representatives from the Pennsylvania Higher Education Agency (PHEAA) will be providing an overview of how to apply for all types of financial aid, including completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is required to determine eligibility for most student aid programs such as the Pennsylvania State Grant, Federal Pell Grant, institutional offers, and federal student and parent loans. This will also be a great opportunity to have PHEAA representatives answer questions you may have.

Financial Help for the College Deposits
 
Mrs. Lambie received this via email.  If you need assistance, please let Mrs. Lambie know.  She will help with the form.
 
 
"This form allows a student to request that their enrollment fee be waived due to financial circumstances.  Enrollment deposits can be $200, $400, $600 or even higher, and restricts access for low-income students in many ways. I'm part of the committee that has been working on this form for 2+ years, and I couldn't be more excited to share it with you.  You don't need to be a NACAC member to use it - everyone can use it.
 
That said, every college can create their own policies on whether or not they will accept it.  My hope is that each college will carefully consider their policies and not make it harder for low-income students to enroll.
 
"If you have any students making their final decisions and can't come up with the money for the deposit, please work with them to submit this form ASAP (I wouldn't wait until the deadline, by the way)."
