While the events are scheduled at high schools in all three attendance zones, parents are invited to attend whichever event is convenient for them.

Those attending the meetings will learn about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA form and the steps they need to take to help their children receive financial aid from postsecondary institutions, including colleges, community colleges and high tech centers.

College financial aid experts will cover the definition of financial aid, how to apply, deadlines, step-by-step instructions for completing FAFSA, Bright Futures, state aid versus federal aid, and more.
