Teenagers or young adults walking outdoors on school campus. Hispanic, Caucasian, and African American students are smiling while walking together to class. They are wearing trendy casual clothing and backpacks, and are carrying school books.

JFCS Financial Aid Center is helping high school students and their parents to start thinking about financing college in this workshop. Open to all parents and teens (9th – 12th grade).

What Can You and Your College-Bound Student Do to Help Lower the Costs of  College?

Be prepared BEFORE your teen’s incoming college acceptances and financial aid packages are on the table. Learn important financial moves to make now so your teen(s) can afford to attend their dream school.

We Will Address the Following Questions at Our Workshop:

• What can you realistically afford to spend for college?
• What are some additional income sources you can use for college?
• How important is it for your teen(s) to apply for internships,
scholarships, and/or work-study?
• When should you consider a financial aid appeal to a given college?
