Financial Aid Series Starts Tomorrow

Tomorrow kicks off the start of the Library's "Financial Aid Series" featuring experts from FSA Advisors and ISM College Planning.  The timing is perfect thanks to a story by Fox 59 this morning which spoke about the increasing cost of a college education and how students and their families should start saving now.  Luckily the Library is prepared with tomorrow's program, "College Knowledge: How to Save Today for a Brighter Tomorrow."  At 6:30 PM on Wednesday, January 30, experts from FSA Advisors will be in talk about saving for college and how it is never to late to start.  They will also focus on the various investment vehicles that can provide tax benefits.

On Wednesday, February 13 at 6:30 PM, return for "Financial Aid Night."  Experts from ISM College Planning will be in to talk about the different types of financial aid and they will walk you through the online version of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA.

Families should rush home and do their taxes because on Wednesday, February 27 at 6:30 PM, ISM College Planning will return for "FAFSA Completion Night." Experts will be on hand to help answer any questions and assist families in completing the FAFSA.  Families attending should bring their completed tax forms, W-2, and social security numbers of the parents and the student as well as any other asset or income information they may have.  Registration is recommended and the state deadline to complete your FAFSA is March 10.
