Host a College Admissions Seminar for Friends
Want To Learn More About Financial Aid? Free Webinar Friday!
Starting with this year’s rising seniors, there will be some big changes in the way families will apply for financial aid. In past years, students and parents filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) beginning in January, using tax information from the year prior to when the student would begin college. This year, the FAFSA will open on October 1, and parents will use the tax year 2 years prior to their student starting college. So for the Class of 2017, parents will use 2015 tax information. Colleges may or may not send students their financial aid offers earlier than before, but using older data will ensure that offers will be more accurate, with less revising required for parents.
Magellan will host several free financial aid webinars throughout the summer and fall to help you understand how the process works. Join us THIS FRIDAY, July 8 at noon, for approximately one hour. You will need to both dial in and click a link on your computer to participate. Please RSVP here. We’ll send out the webinar invitations tomorrow.
