FINANCIAL AID NIGHT FOR 11th and 12th grade PCS PARENTS
Concerned about college costs?
College costs continue to rise - UC's now cost $30,000+ per year. If you are concerned about college costs, PCS will be hosting Steve Shapiro's annual "How Will You Pay for College" presentation. Steve is a CPA and a Certified Financial Planner. He speaks to parents at many local high schools each year and first visited PCS in 2004.
- Financial Aid Basics – who should file; how the system works; why everyone should file!
- How some students attend private colleges for the same price as a UC
- Strategies to reduce the cost - for both low and high income families This presentation is not just about financial aid.
Reducing the impact of college costs depends on planning ahead and doing your homework (PARENTS). Even high-income families can reduce the impact. Please mark your calendar and attend this important meeting. Parents of students in 11th and 12th grade are welcome. With recent changes in the financial aid process (prior-prior year), it’s more important than ever to begin now. If you want to reduce college costs, do not procrastinate. Bring your questions!
Date: Monday, September 23rd
Time: 6:00pm to 7:30 pm
Where: PCS Student Center
