Students and families can learn more about available financial resources
Vermont Student Assistance Corp. offers free workshops at local high schools to help families plan how to pay for college and training after high school.
The “Paying for College” presentation (October 5, 6:30 p.m. in BUHS Multi-purpose room) provides students and their parents/guardians with information on financial aid and other resources available to pay for college. Among the topics covered are: types of financial aid; ways to apply; how family contribution is calculated; how financial aid is awarded; student and parent loans; how to compare college costs and alternative payment options.
The Financial Aid Forms Workshops (October 25, 4:30 & 6:00 p.m. in BUHS Computer Lab 123f) provide students and their parents/guardians with assistance completing the forms (FAFSA – Free Application for Federal Student Aid, and the Vermont Grant Application).
If possible, prior to the Forms Workshops, obtain a Federal Student Aid ID for the student and one parent. Use these tips/directions: https://ifap.ed.gov/eannouncements/attachments/050415FSAIDReplaceHowToCreateFSAIDGuideATTACH.pdf
