West Shore Community College’s Financial Aid Office will host a series of financial aid workshops for prospective college students and their families. High school students as well as adults considering going to college are encouraged to attend a workshop.
On Nov. 17, at 6 p.m., Mason County Eastern High School and Mason County Central (MCC) High School will attend a workshop hosted at MCC.
On Dec. 14, at 6:30 p.m., Manistee Catholic Central High School and Manistee High School will meet in the Manistee High School Library.
Baldwin High School will hold its workshop on Dec. 16, at 5 p.m.
“We will be offering information that is applicable to attendance at any college, university, or other post-secondary institution,” said Rebekah Schaub, WSCC Director of Financial Aid.
General information will be covered about financial aid with detailed instructions on how to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online.
"Many people don't realize that now is the time to begin investigating financial aid and scholarship opportunities for the next school year," states Schaub. "Students could miss out on grants and scholarships by beginning the process too late. Many students also mistakenly think they will not qualify and never complete the application."
For those unable to attend a workshop, the financial aid office, located in the Schoenherr Campus Center, is a resource for more information or to assist students in completing the FAFSA application. Students are encouraged to make an appointment.
The office telephone number is (231) 843-5848.
