Sampson Community College and College Foundation of NC, Inc., are partnering to present a financial aid presentation on Tuesday, Feb. 12, for all prospective students planning to attend college in the upcoming academic year and have not yet applied for financial aid. The informative session will be held in the Activities Center on the SCC campus at 6 p.m.
Judye Tart, director of Financial Aid at SCC, along with April Morey, regional representative from College Foundation, Inc., will spearhead the event. Tart says this is a great opportunity for high school students and their parents to learn valuable information regarding the application process, types of financial aid, deadlines, verification requirements and other important financial aid information.
She is urging all area high school students who are interested in the financial aid process to attend the workshop, regardless of the college they are planning to attend—private, four-year or community college. “The workshop is for everyone who has questions about planning and paying for college as well as learning to utilize the College Foundation website for scholarship searches and other useful resources.”
Financial aid presentations are routinely conducted in Clinton City and Sampson County schools. However, Tart says she is also extending the invitation to other student populations as well. “Sometimes there are conflicts that prohibit students from attending their high school presentations, and we hope this workshop will be conveniently scheduled for them. We also encourage home-schooled students as well as those who attend private school, to join us,” says Tart.
