Significant changes are coming to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) this year. To help high school seniors and their parents understand how the changes will affect filing for federal financial aid and possibly how much aid they will receive, the Peters Township Public Library will partner with the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) to offer a College Financial Aid Night on Tuesday, September 20 at 6:30 p.m.
Jayeann Harr, Education Access Partner with PHEAA, will explain how with the new process, families will be able to begin completing the FAFSA on October 1, rather than January 1. This change more closely aligns the financial aid application process with the admission application process. In order to accommodate this earlier filing schedule, the FAFSA will collect income information from two years prior to the academic year rather than the previous year.
Registration is required for this program. Register online or call 724.941.9430 #1.
