Modesto Junior College is offering a ‘Cash for College Night’ for high school seniors and recent graduates. The workshop is set for today, Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 3:30 p.m. in the Center for Advanced Technologies, Room 113, on East Campus, 435 College Ave., Modesto.
The free financial aid workshop will be of value to any college-bound student who needs help meeting college expenses, either at MJC or at another institution and no advance registration is necessary. The workshops offer a basic overview of the application processes.
Computers and financial aid technicians will available to assist attendees in filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), or applying for the Dream Act and Chafee Grant. Most high school students will need to report parental information on their financial aid application form and may find it helpful to have their parents attend the workshop with them.
More information on the FAFSA is available and a FAFSA form may be submitted online at www.fafsa.gov. For more information on financial aid or the workshop call the MJC Financial Aid Office at 575-7700.
