WSU Vancouver “A – Z” Workshop Offers Advice on Paying for College
VANCOUVER, Wash. – Learn how to pay for college at Washington State University Vancouver’s A – Z of Financial Aid and Scholarships Workshop offered from 6 – 7 p.m. March 7 and again from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. March 19 in the Student Services building, room 101. Free and open to the public, the workshop is a jumping-off point for all college-bound students no matter their age, current financial situation or school they plan to attend.
Led by trained financial aid experts, the A – Z of Financial Aid and Scholarships Workshop increases financial aid awareness and makes clear the readily available options for paying for college. The workshop will answer commonly asked questions such as: What is financial aid? What happens after I file my FAFSA? Are there any scholarships available? How do I get my money?
April Lappin, financial aid and scholarships manager, views the workshop as an opportunity to increase the community’s knowledge of financial aid processes.
“Many students and families are confused by financial aid and may even opt out of choosing a college path because they do not realize there are many different routes to paying for a college education,” said Lappin. “Our workshop explores the different choices students have and how financial aid works at all institutions. The more families understand the process, the better educated decisions they can make when trying to determine what fits best for them or their student.”
