CHICAGO – To provide more information on the college admissions and financial aid application processes for college-bound students and their families, state Rep. Fran Hurley, D-Chicago, is partnering with local lawmakers to host a College Admissions and Financial Aid Seminar on Saturday, March 28 at noon at the Evergreen Park Library, located at 9400 S. Troy.
“Now is the time of year that students will begin applying for admission to universities and colleges for the fall semester,” said Hurley. “Determining which school is your best fit, navigating the process to apply to school and properly applying for financial aid can be tricky.”
Hurley is partnering with Rep. Kelly Burke, D-Oak Lawn, Rep. Marcus Evans, D-Chicago, Rep. Justin Slaughter, D-Chicago, and Sen. Bill Cunningham, D-Chicago, to host a College Admissions and Financial Aid Seminar. Experts from the University of Illinois system will be providing a free seminar on college financial aid, the admissions process and other important topics for college-bound students and their families. Hurley’s seminar is free and open to the public, and will discuss general college information, not limited to the University of Illinois.
“Going to college is not as simple as being accepted. That is just the first step, as many families need financial assistance to afford to send their student to college. Finding the right financial aid package for your family can make a huge difference,” continued Hurley. “I encourage students that will heading to college soon to consider stopping by my College Admissions and Financial Aid Seminar.”
