Financial Aid 101
Wednesday, October 5, 5:30 p.m.

Like any investment, there are up-front costs paid in anticipation of long-term gains and benefits. Student financial aid - educational loans, scholarships, grants, and work-study positions -- can help with those costs.

For most students, the responsibility for paying the majority of educational costs rests on their families. Most Penn State Students and their families use personal savings, tuition savings plans, student summer employment, and Penn State's payment plans, in combination with student financial aid, to pay for their education.

We encourage you and your family join us for this FREE workshop to explore a variety of financing strategies and come up with a sound plan that will make a Penn State degree a reality for your future.
