From the Roosevelt Counseling Department:
On Thursday 1/14 there will be a series of free web broadcasts sponsored by the US Department of Education Office of Federal Student Aid, allowing students to log in and talk live with the presenters. The broadcasts are running 3:00 p.m.-10:00 p.. Eastern Time (noon-7:00 p.m. Seattle time) and cover various topics from merit scholarships, to filling out the FAFSA to money for student athletes. See your counselor for a detailed list of the various chat sessions, as well as information about how to log on.
This is a great opportunity for high school students who know they will need financial aid for college to ask questions about it.
