As the costs of college and vocational/technical schools continue to increase, students and their parents/guardians are searching for ways to finance their education. Therefore, Financial Aid Night is an important night for seniors and their parents/guardians. Financial Aid representatives from Ancilla College will present at the program. Information will be provided on available sources of financial assistance and the most effective method families can go about applying for financial help.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the document used to apply for both federal and state aid. It is also the document used to determine the dollar amount a family is expected to contribute toward the cost of their student’s education. The FAFSA document will be discussed in great detail. The FAFSA’s official website is www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Also, on the PCSC Calendar, it was originally indicated that the Guidance Department would be reviewing PSAT scores with sophomores and juniors on this same evening; however, PSAT scores have been delayed this year. The most recent timeline states that scores will be available to students online Jan. 7 and schools will receive paper score reports by Jan. 29.
