Norristown, PA 02/15/2023 – Montgomery County OIC will host a free Financial Aid Night on Thursday, February 23rd at 5:00 PM at the OIC located at 1101 Arch Street, Norristown, PA. Montgomery County high school students and their parents are encouraged to attend this informative session to get a better understanding of the student aid process and how best to begin planning to fund their higher education.

A student aid expert from the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) will be available to provide information and answer questions.

Parents and students will learn how to apply for all types of financial aid, including completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), which is required to determine eligibility for most student aid programs, such as the Pennsylvania State Grant, Federal Pell Grant, institutional awards, and federal student and parent loans.

Participants will also be briefed on Pennsylvania-specific aid programs, as well as the importance of minimizing student loan debt and applying for grants and scholarships to help pay for education costs.
