Tis The Season For Financial Aid Workshops | 12.07.09

Posted in FAFSA, Financial Aid By Student Loan Network Staff

Christmas CookiesIt is that time of year again! A time for holiday parties, trimming the tree, wrapping presents, and financial aid. The 2010-2011 FAFSA will be available after January 1st. Call me Scrooge, but if you are a high school senior, the parent of a high school senior, or anyone attending college for the first time it is important to take a little bit of time away from all of the holiday cheer to learn about the FAFSA form and how to properly fill it out.

Mistakes on the FAFSA can cost you thousands of dollars in financial aid, so if you have lingering questions about how it works make sure you talk to people who have been through it or financial aid experts. Luckily, this is also the time of year when high schools and communities hold financial aid workshops to help families of prospective college students understand the process better. Contact your school’s guidance department to find out when they are holding a workshop. After you attend you can finish all or your last minute shopping and Christmas cookie baking feeling relaxed and ready to conquer the FAFSA in January!
