CANTON – An upcoming hands-on training session will focus on making college affordable by maximizing students’ financial aid.
SUNY Canton and SUNY Potsdam will be participating in the SUNY Statewide Financial Aid Day from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb 21, in the Halford Lobby on the ground floor of SUNY Canton’s Faculty Office Building.
The Student State-wide Financial Aid Days are offered so students and parents can receive assistance with the financial aid application process. Financial Aid professionals from both colleges will be helping students complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA forms. Future, prospective, current students, and family members are invited to participate in the hands-on training session. Admissions Counselors from both colleges will also be on hand.
“We realize that given the economy, financial aid is more important than ever,” said Kerrie Cooper, SUNY Canton Director of Financial Aid. “It is often the determining factor in whether a student attends college. We can help students make sure that they get all of the aid that they are eligible for.”
Financial Aid Days are offered as a state-wide service through SUNY, but registration is required. For more information or to register for the SUNY Financial Aid Day at SUNY Canton, call the Student Service Center at (315) 386-7616 or 1-800-388-7123.
