Reading – On Thursday, September 27, beginning at 6 p.m., Sen. Judy Schwank is sponsoring her annual College Financial Aid Awareness Seminar in the Commissioners Board Room of the Muhlenberg Township Building, 210 George Street, Reading.
And, on Saturday, October 6, beginning at 10:30 a.m., Sen. Schwank is sponsoring a Free Application for Federal Student (FAFSA) Preparation Lab in the First Floor Classroom of the Muhlenberg Township Building at 210 George Street, Reading.
“College and other postsecondary schools continue to become more and more expensive,” Schwank said. “Fortunately, help is available for students and families to pay for higher education, but they need to know how to find it and apply it. Both of these events will help students and families navigate the college financial process.”
At the September 27 College Financial Aid Awareness Seminar, a financial aid expert from the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) and the Pennsylvania Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (PASFAA) will be on hand to explain the sources of college financial aid available to families and answer questions about the student aid application process.
At the October 6 FAFSA Preparation Lab, financial aid experts from PHEAA and other organizations will be hand to help students and families file online their 2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student. Students can file their FAFSA forms starting October 1st for the 2019-2020 school year.
Both events are free and open to the public; however, due to a limited number of computer terminal available, preregistration is required for the FAFSA Preparation Lab on October 6. For more information or to register for the FAFSA Lab, families can call 610-929-2151.
