St. Bonaventure To Host Financial Aid Night

St. Bonaventure University will host a college financial aid workshop at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Doyle Hall dining room.

The annual workshop is co-sponsored by St. Bonaventure and the Cattaraugus County Campus of Jamestown Community College; each school hosts the event every other year.

The workshop is open to the public and is a valuable tool for students and their families, said Troy Martin, financial aid director at St. Bonaventure.

General financial aid topics will be discussed as well as a review of the 2013-2014 Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

“We know that this is the time of year when high school seniors and their parents start to get nervous about paying for college and completing the FAFSA,” Martin said. “The session will provide helpful information about the financial aid process, describe the various types of aid available, and give instructions on completing the FAFSA. We are glad that the two local colleges can partner to offer this workshop to the community.”

Beverages and cookies will be served.

People with more questions can contact the financial aid offices at St. Bonaventure at 375-2528 or Jamestown Community College at 376-7512.
