Financial Aid information night at Cook County Higher Education Tuesday, March 19

Need money for college education or training?  Come hear financial aid professional LaNita Robinson speak about federal financial aid and application tips in this interactive presentation.

Robinson will be able to answer your questions about financial aid whether attending a community and technical college or a four-year program. Topics include: what is the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal student Aid); completing the FAFSA (common trouble spots); when should you apply; and what is the difference between a grant, scholarship and loan? This presentation is for adults going back to college, high school juniors and seniors, parents and guardians.

Robinson lives in Duluth, and is currently the director of financial aid with Lake Superior College. She has over 12 years of experience in federal financial aid and says despite all her years of experience, “She still sees new things every day which is part of the challenge and reason why financial aid rarely tends to get monotonous.”

The presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, March 19 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the North Shore Campus in Grand Marais. Free materials and handouts will be available. The information night is free of charge and open to all.
