Description

Please join us!

JFCS' Financial Aid Center and YouthFirst Programs are joining forces to help high school students and their parents start thinking about financing college in this simultaneous two-track workshop!

PARENT TRACK
Before your college-bound teen applies to schools the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form needs to be accurately submitted, so you can maximize your reported financial need. Parents with 9th-12th grade students will learn important financial steps to follow now before their child’s FAFSA must be completed.

WHAT YOU WILL GET:

  • Expert tips and tools to help complete your FAFSA form like a pro
  • Criteria that qualify families for federal grants and loans
  • What to do when FAFSA information is incorrect or needs updating
  • What to be aware of when completing the 2018 federal taxes and how it will affect your 2019-20 FAFSA form

TEEN TRACK
A diverse panel of Bay Area college students discuss how they chose their school and how they are payingfor college. A Q/A period will follow to answer teens' specific questions about their college choice such as location, course study, state versus private, financing, work-study, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Who should attend?
We encourage all 9th-12th graders and their parents to attend. Teens and parents are also welcome to come on their own.
