Financial aid help night rescheduled for Feb. 4
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (January 28, 2010) – Elizabethton and Carter County high school seniors and their parents are invited to a financial aid help night hosted by Milligan College on Thursday, Feb. 4, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Milligan’s Gregory Center for the Liberal Arts.
The event was originally scheduled for Jan. 7, but was cancelled due to weather conditions and school closings.
Jason Seay, director of outreach for the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation, will conduct a financial aid presentation from 6 to 7 p.m. Financial planning experts as well as other financial aid vendors will be available to answer questions before and after the presentation concerning student loans, grants, scholarships and other types of student financial aid.
The college financial aid day is not college-specific. It’s intended for all seniors interested in attending a two- or four-year public or private college or university.
“There are so many opportunities available to help students finance a college education,” said Diane Keasling, coordinator of financial aid at Milligan College. “This evening is designed to take the guesswork out of the financial aid process and to give high school seniors and their parents the chance to ask a lot of questions and take home a lot of information.”
Financial aid counselors will answer questions related to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the primary form used to determine a student’s need; merit-based scholarships from college and other organizations (including the Tennessee Lottery Scholarship); need-based aid from federal, state and college resources; federal educational loan programs; campus work study; how to communicate special circumstances to college financial aid offices; and more.
Refreshments will be provided. The financial aid night is free of charge; however, reservations are required by Feb. 3. To register for the event please contact your high school guidance counselor, or for more information, call Diane Keasling at 423.461.8968.
