Pitt-Bradford’s Financial Aid staff will be offering free financial
aid advice to college-bound students.
The financial aid high school night
presentations begin Thursday night in Coudersport and continue through the end of
January 2014. The schedule is as follows:
p.m. Dec. 5 Coudersport Junior-Senior High School
8 Otto-Eldred High School
p.m. Jan. 9 Bradford Area High School
p.m. Jan. 13 Smethport Junior-Senior High School

Information covered will include the
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), deadlines and tips that will
make completing the FAFSA easier. A counselor will also talk about the
financial aid process and the different types of aid that are available to
families and students. Finally, the counselor will talk about different
situations that can affect aid, such as income, academic progress and whether a
student is considered a dependent or independent student. There will be time
for questions during or after the presentation.
In February 2014, the Financial Aid
staff will offer two different FAFSA completion nights, one from 6 to 8 p.m.
Feb. 13 at the Warren County Career Center and one from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 20 in
the Pitt-Bradford Sport and Fitness Center computer lab (Room 156).
Those sessions will enable families
to complete the FAFSA online with help from the staff. Those interested should bring their 2013 Federal
tax return if complete or their 2012 Federal tax return if the 2013 return is
not yet done. Families should also bring
Federal PIN numbers, if they have them, and investment statements for assets
other than retirement accounts.
