BROWNWOOD – December 4, 2014 – Parents of local junior and senior high school students are invited to attend a free seminar covering general college financial aid information with an emphasis on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The event will be hosted by Glenda Huff, HPU’s director of student aid, at 6:30 p.m. on January 29 and February 5 in the Paul and Jane Meyer Faith and Life Leadership Center on the HPU campus.
According to Huff, it is extremely advantageous to begin the financial aid process as soon as possible after January 1.
“Some universities have very early priority dates for awarding financial aid funds,” she said. “These sessions are open to parents of all area students, even those not planning to enroll at HPU.”
University representatives will also discuss HPU’s Heart of Texas Scholarship Program, designed to benefit students graduating from high schools in Brown, Callahan, Coleman, Comanche, Eastland, McCulloch, Mills and San Saba counties. The scholarship awards up to $14,000 annually to students who meet unconditional admission requirements.
