Upcoming FAFSA Resource Webinars
As your seniors and parents of seniors get ready to enter college enrollment season, they may have questions about the financial aid process. The Minnesota Department of Higher Education is offering a webinar series in February to help families understand the process and what to expect. All sessions will be approximately one hour long with a short presentation from financial aid experts followed by time for questions from the audience.
