November 22, 2014 • Latino College Fair
The Latino College Fair allows students and parents/guardians to meet and talk with more than 50 independent college and university admission and financial aid representatives. The Planning and Paying for College Workshop will help students and their families better understand the admissions and financial aid process and programs. The workshop, simultaneously translated into Spanish via headphones, will cover college affordability, including explanations of grants and scholarships plus financial aid forms, terms and deadlines. The “Ask the Financial Aid Expert” stations provide students and families an opportunity to sit down with financial aid experts to get answers to their specific questions about paying for college.
This event is funded primarily through a federal College Access Challenge Grant (CACG) awarded to cIcu by the New York State Higher Education Services Corp, the state agency designated to administer CACG. Remaining funds come from cIcu, Fordham University, and cIcu member colleges and universities.
