Financial Aid Virtual Events

Updated February 9th:

There are multiple Financial Aid Events. Seniors and Juniors are encouraged to participate. Parents and Guardians are suggested to participate with their students. 

All interested students must register in advance on the attached calendar.

Understanding the Financial Aid Offer & Balances: The Financial Aid Offer, or Financing Plans, that you receive to provide an idea of the costs associated with attending post secondary education can be confusing as each school formats their information differently. PHEAA, represented by Linda Pacewicz and Daniel Wray of PA Forward are offering a one hour webinar to assist in understanding and navigating through the types of Aid listed, what you are being offered and identifying the balances and next steps needed. Q&A interaction is encouraged. Event Dates
Thursday, February 11 – Noon (ET)
Tuesday, February 16 – 6:30 PM (ET)
Thursday, February 25 – Noon (ET)

Covering the Gap – Pieces of the Puzzle to Help Pay Your Education Bill: Understanding education balances can be confusing and whether you’re trying to address the costs or beginning to plan for higher education, this review is for you. PHEAA, represented by Linda Pacewicz and Daniel Wray of PA Forward, are offering one-hour webinars on the topic of Covering the Gap. These webinars emphasize best practices (such as seeking grants and scholarships first), reminds families about additional resources (such as payment plans), and touch on private/alternative loans as a last resort. The discussion will also include the basics of credit: what is a credit score, what factors impact a credit score, how can a credit score be improved and the effects on your borrowing capability. Event Dates
Tuesday, February 9 – 6:30 PM (ET)
Wednesday, February 17 – 12:30 PM (ET)
Tuesday, February 23 – 6:30 (ET)
