Money Matters Workshops and Seminars
Money Matters workshops and seminars are open to prospective and current students. We are working on the spring 2014 schedule. Please check back soon for upcoming workshops and seminars.
March 1 is the priority deadline for filing the 2014-2015 FAFSA. If you haven’t completed your FAFSA yet and need assistance, the Financial Aid Office is here to help! We are holding FAFSA workshops this week. Come in with your family’s 2013 tax returns and W-2’s and a financial aid counselor will help you complete your FAFSA online. Haven’t filed taxes yet? Not a problem. Students can submit the FAFSA with estimates and make corrections later.
