How Are You Paying for College?September 09, 2013
Category: Community Outreach
The Utah Higher Education Assistance Authority (UHEAA) will host a Regional Financial Aid Night in Cedar City this Thursday, September 12, where prospective and future college students and their parents can learn about options for paying for college and visit with representatives from various Utah colleges and universities.
Southern Utah parents and students grades 9 – 12 are encouraged to attend and take advantage of scholarship opportunities and other resources. UHEAA’s stop in Cedar City is one of 17 such events to be held across the state to assist Utah’s college-bound contingency in their preparations for collegiate success.
Of the annual public information tour, past participants have said: "I learned about FAFSA and how everyone should apply for it. I learned about work study and how you can use it to help pay for college. There are several different [types of] loans. I feel that I am walking away from this presentation more confident with student loans and how I should go about searching for scholarships.”
The Cedar City presentation will be held at Cedar High School, 703 West 600 South, from 6 – 8 p.m. on September 12. Additional information is available online at facebook.com/uheaa/events. Questions should be directed to UHEAA Outreach at firstname.lastname@example.org.
