The Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC), in collaboration with Bellows Falls Union High School, has scheduled a free Paying for College presentation at the school on Tuesday, October 27 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The presentation, which normally runs about one and a half to two hours, provides students and their parents with information on financial aid and other resources available to pay for college. Time is allotted for questions.
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, and alternative payment options.
VSAC is a public nonprofit created by the state to help Vermonters plan and pay for education beyond high school. VSAC administers the Vermont Higher Education Investment Plan, Vermont's official 529 college savings plan; state grants for full-time, part-time and non-degree study; public and private scholarships; and federal and private education loans.
