You are cordially invited to my College Planning Fair from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.Thursday, Jan. 26 at First Presbyterian Church of Lansdowne, 140 N. Lansdowne Ave. in Lansdowne.
At the College Planning Fair, students and parents will learn about
saving for college, and will receive information about and assistance in
completing applications for colleges and financial aid, which is more
important than ever, thanks to increasing tuition
at colleges and universities.
The event will include presenters from the Pennsylvania Higher Education
Assistance Agency and the state Treasurer's Office, as well as
representatives from several local colleges.
The PHEAA presenter will provide step-by-step instructions on how to
complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. That
application is a mandatory first step for most federal, state, local and
individual college grants. The Treasurer's Office
presenter will discuss college savings programs.
