UCO invites parents, students to financial aid workshop

EDMOND — The University of Central Oklahoma hopes to help make college more affordable by sharing tips and information about financial aid to current high school seniors and their parents at its free financial aid workshop from 2-4 p.m. Feb. 17 at the university’s W. Roger Webb Forensic Science Institute.   

The workshop will have a relaxed atmosphere, allowing parents and students to connect with financial aid experts, on-site assistance for filling out the financial aid application, information on what financial aid options are available, and helpful hints in making the application process easier.

“Many students do not know the funding that is available though the federal government’s financial aid program. This workshop aims to help students learn more about funding options and how to fill out the free application for federal student aid (FAFSA),” said Carol Dean, coordinator of the workshop and assistant director of federal work-study and scholarships at Central.

“By filling out the FAFSA, students may qualify to receive the Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant, Federal Pell Grant, institutional awards and low-cost federal student and parent loans.”

Those attending the workshop should bring a copy of their 2012 tax return to complete the 2013-14 FAFSA.

The workshop is free and open to all high school seniors and their parents no matter where the student is planning to attend college. Attendees do not need to register and are encouraged to dress casual for this event.

For more information about the workshop, contact Dean at 974-3940. To learn more about Central including admission criteria, tuition details and available majors, visit www.uco.edu/em.
