Please join Amy Sawdey, PHEAA's Higher Education Access Partner in Allegheny County, for a Financial Aid Presentation and FAFSA Completion Discussion at Deer Lakes High School. The Financial Aid Presentation will provide an early understanding of the financial decisions students need to make concerning higher education. This presentation will discuss higher education costs, the types of financial aid available, and how to apply for financial aid. The FAFSA Completion Discussion will then guide students and families through the process of filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The presentation will also provide an overview of the necessary requirements in order to complete the FAFSA and State Grant Application. During the presentation, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions at any time, as well as at the end of the presentation.
Event: PHEAA Financial Aid Presentation
Date: October 6, 2022
Time: 6 PM to 7 PM
Location: Deer Lakes High School Library
The FAFSA is used to determine if students qualify for almost all forms of need-based financial assistance, including the Pennsylvania State Grant, Federal Pell Grant, many scholarships, work-study programs, many school-based awards, and federal student loans. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to find out about the student aid that is available to help finance college expenses.
The deadline for submitting the FAFSA to determine eligibility for a need-based Pennsylvania State Grant is May 1 (or August 1 for first-time students entering programs of study at community colleges, business, trade or technical schools, and hospital schools of nursing); however, families should submit their FAFSA as early as possible after October 1 to ensure meeting earlier financial aid deadlines that may be required by selected schools.
If you have any questions regarding the Deer Lakes FAFSA Night, please reach out to the School Counseling Office.
