How to Pay for College: Understanding the Financial Aid Process
Perfect for seniors and parents

Wednesday, September 29 at 5:30 pm – Tune in on the ICAN Facebook page or REGISTER

In this collaborative webinar we will discuss what information is needed to file the FAFSA and what options are available for students under DACA status or as an undocumented student.

Filing the FAFSA is not as challenging as it once was. Sometimes the hardest part of getting the form completed is having all the documents and information gathered. Our student success advisor will provide visuals of all the documents and will go over in detail all the information you will need in order to complete the FAFSA successfully.

Being under DACA status or being an undocumented youth has many challenges, one of them being accessing financial aid to pay for college. We will discuss what options and resources are available for students in this situation.
