Parents and students are invited to attend a free, comprehensive presentation on college financing, offered by the Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority (MEFA).
The seminar will be hosted by Gateway Regional High School on Thursday, November 2nd at 6:30pm in the Gateway Performing Arts Center. This is a must-see presentation for all seniors who plan on attending a community college or four year college, but is also strongly recommended for all high school students who are college-bound.
An experienced MEFA representative, Simone Backstedt, who is also the Assistant Director of Financial Aid at Westfield State University, will discuss the financial aid process. The seminar will teach parents how to apply for financial aid, compare financial aid award letters and seek available financing options. Time will be allotted for questions and answers.
It is important to note that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2018-19 school year became available on Oct. 1st. Starting last year, this is a new timeline that starts three months earlier than usual to align financial aid applications with the college admissions season and to make the application process easier by not having to estimate previous year’s taxes.
