College financial aid meeting slated

CLAYTON — To assist families in understanding college financial aid opportunities, the counseling center at Northmont High School will sponsor its annual financial aid meeting for parents on Wednesday, October 26 at 6 p.m. in the Northmont Community Auditorium – Lecture Hall B.

There is no admission fee and any parent/guardian is welcome to attend. The information provided would be especially helpful to parents of junior and senior students as they plan how to meet today’s high college costs.

An area authority on financial aid from Sinclair Community College will present financial aid alternatives applicable to all colleges including grant and scholarship programs, loan opportunities and co-operative education and work programs. Some of these aid programs are now available to all families regardless of need. A way to get an early estimate of the family’s eligibility for aid will be discussed as well as Dayton area and Northmont district scholarship programs.

For more information on this program, call Northmont High School Counselor, Erica Marsden, at 832-6000.
