This semester, St. Petersburg College is hosting four seminars to teach both prospective and current students how to apply for federal financial aid, grants, scholarships, and loans.
From Florida Bright Futures, Foundation Scholarships, and Federal Pell Grants to Federal Supplemental Education opportunity grants, professional one-on-one assistance will be provided for students and parents looking for financial evaluation for the cost of education. As student Gretchen Brown said, “Why struggle through the process when you can get one-on-one assistance?”
In addition to in-person guidance, St. Petersburg College (SPC) is providing help to students through a free online program, American Student Assistance, which is a helpful tool for keeping track of your student loans, job and internship opportunities, and managing your money wisely, as well as providing information and advice on credit and credit reports.
Free application and support will be offered from 6:30-8:30pm at one of these convenient locations:
• February 5th- Boca Ciega High School
• February 19th-Dunedin High School
• February 26th-Lakewood High School
• March 12th- Largo High School
Please bring the following information to ensure the best service possible:
• Federal Student Aid PIN (obtain your pin at: www.pin.ed.gov)
• Student/Parent’s 2012 W-2 and Federal Income Tax Form (1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ)
• 2012 untaxed income (Social Security, disability, workman’s comp, etc.)
• Driver’s license or state ID
• Social Security card
• Spouse or parent’s Social Security number and date of birth
For students looking to alleviate the cost of college, SPC’s 2013 FAFSA Nights might be just the cure. The deadlines are approaching quickly; will you pass up free money?
