A graduation ceremony in Colorado Springs

FREE College Planning Workshop in Colorado Springs This Weekend!

Though May seems to be a long time from now, for high school seniors in and around Colorado Springs, May is fast approaching.

Most colleges and universities will begin delivering their decisions regarding admissions to high school seniors next month. But rather than pure joy, letters notifying kids that they’ve been admitted to the program(s) of their choice might bring a little anxiety with their exciting news.

This weekend, College Planning of Colorado is offering a FREE college planning workshop that might just help alleviate some of the unease parents and their college-bound kids in the Springs area might have about the expense of higher education.

“HOW TO PAY FOR COLLEGE WITHOUT GOING BROKE”  will be held on Saturday, Jan. 14 from 10:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at the East Library, 5550 N. Union Blvd.

The workshop will cover critical issues parents of high school students need to be informed of as they prepare to send their high school students to college. These include:

• The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

• How to pick colleges that will give you the best financial aid packages.

• How to lower your “out-of-pocket” costs and get the maximum amount of money from each school.

Seating is limited. To reserve your seat, call (719) 593-1552 or register online at www.CollegePlanningofColorado.com.
