Local parents of high school seniors are strongly encouraged to register for an opportunity to meet with area financial aid professionals for a FREE completion of their Financial Aid (FAFSA) at the College Access Center on the evening of Wednesday December 7, 2016 from 6:00pm-8:30pm.
“Starting the financial aid process is always scary for parents. But finishing the FAFSA is really the MOST important part of the process and what most Financial Aid professionals stress. Because if the FAFSA is not completed in a timely manner, an eligible student may not receive all of their institution aid, university grants, scholarships, or offered the lowest possible loan options simply due to being late. So we have set up this FREE evening activity to help Delco parents complete their FAFSA before the December holiday break so their child can receive maximum financial aid consideration”, says CACDC Director Julani Ghana.
Delco parents simply have to bring any of their 2015 tax information (including W2’s & 1099’s) and our Team of college and university financial aid experts can complete their financial aid filing.
Due to limited number of families that we can accommodate and the large annual turn out expected for this event scheduled for Wednesday December 7th, families are required to RSVP immediately by calling (610) 499-1391 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org so their place is reserved.
The College Access Center located at 400 E. 21st Street Chester PA, sits on the campus of Widener University and has become the region’s premiere, after school, community based resource location for Delco students and families for assistance with college admissions, financial aid, scholarships, and preparing for a successful career after high school.
The Center also continues to provide FREE college preparatory services to county students both traditional (grades 8th-12th) and nontraditional (adults) including a weekly SAT/ACT Class conducted by Kaplan-Trained Facilitators, 1-on-1 Counseling, Homework Help, Math (Algebra) Development, Tutoring, mentoring programs for young men, along with parent and community workshops on admissions, financial aid, and scholarships.
