Cumberland County College offers help with financial aid application process
Applying for financial aid for education beyond high school can be confusing, especially with the paperwork that is required for students seeking any Federal or New Jersey aid, including grants and loans, and some scholarships. Cumberland County College can help with free 2-hour moderated workshops to assist families in getting the help they need to complete the 2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the form that is required to apply for financial assistance programs. Each Thursday evening workshop mobilizes trained financial aid professionals who are eager to help families take the first step in preparing students to attend college. Knowledgeable English- and Spanish-speaking professionals will be available to assist those in attendance. The free workshops will be offered in February, March, April and May. All workshops take place 5-7 p.m. in Room ASL4, located in the Academic Building, 3322 College Drive. The dates are: Feb. 28, March 7, March 21, April 4, April 18, and May 2. Space is limited. Those planning to attend a workshop are asked to visit www.cccnj.edu. Select “Paying for College” at the top of the home page, then “Financial Aid Workshops-Sign Up Now” to register for a spot.
