Library to offer tips on college financial aid | Free
The thought of finding a way to pay for a college education can be a daunting task. College-bound high school students and their parents are encouraged to attend an informative presentation, “College-Planning Strategies,” on Wednesday, Aug. 28, beginning at 7 p.m., in meeting room 2 of the University Branch Library, located at 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.
Brannon Lloyd, a college financial-planning educator, will provide an overview of the costs associated with attending college. He will discuss ways of qualifying for different types of financial aid without getting trapped in a financial nightmare of high rate, high payment, and expensive debt. Learn how to avoid loans, maximize merit-aid, and avoid pitfalls that may hurt a student’s eligibility for financial aid.
Get tips on things to do to increase a student’s chances of obtaining scholarships and grants, regardless of a family’s income or a student’s grades. The program is free and open to the public.
