For Parents of Seniors: Financial Aid Night, Wednesday, Oct. 22

Parents are invited to attend a free presentation on college financing. The seminar will be held on Wednesday, October 22 from 7 to 8:30PM in the Newton South auditorium. This is offered through MEFA (Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority), the Commonwealth’s resource on planning, saving and paying for college. An experienced MEFA representative, Carla Minchello, Director of Financial Assistance at Bentley University, will provide an overview of the financial aid process, including types of financial aid, how to apply using the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and determining financing options for your family. Families are encouraged to visit MEFA before and after the seminar for e-books, calculators and helpful tools and resources.
