PHEAA – Financial Aid Webinars:

Learn about education loans – which loan is right for me

I’ve found the schools I’d like to attend and after filing the FAFSA, State Grant Form, Scholarships and researching higher education costs and calculating the funding gap, I see that education loans are a necessity but where do I go from here?  What loan programs are available?  What are the advantages and disadvantage of the various types?  Join Financial Aid experts Linda Pacewicz and Dan Wray of the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) for a 1 hour webinar to review the different borrowing options and examine the details associated with each option.  Linda and Dan will answer your questions as you sort out the information and make decisions that are right for you and your family.

Financial Aid Timeline – know what to do when

Follow financial aid experts Linda Pacewicz and Dan Wray of PHEAA’s PAForward program as they guide you along the exciting (and sometimes bumpy) road to an affordable higher education.  The journey will begin before high school and end in the land of education loan repayment – or maybe even education loan forgiveness.  One thing is for certain: it’s never to early to start preparing for a successful higher education experience.  This 1 hour presentation will provide the starting points and web resources- for effective research before, during and after your student makes postsecondary decisions.  Know what to expect and to plan for it is the key.  Failing to plan, is planning to fail!

October 12th Tuesday, 6:30pm;     October 19th – Noon, lunch and learn;     October 28th, Thursday, 6:30pm
