Paying for College Open House Saturday, Feb. 24

2-14-07

WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- Parents and students are invited to learn how to make college possible through financial aid, as Mercer County Community College hosts an open house, "Paying for College," on Saturday, Feb. 24, from 10 a.m. to noon. The event takes place in the Student Center on the West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. College tours will be available.

The federal government, the State of New Jersey, and Mercer County Community College offer eligible students a range of financial aid opportunities. Most aid is provided in the form of grants through federal and state funded programs. Funds may be awarded for education-related expenses including tuition, fees, books, and indirect costs such as living expenses and transportation. Grants are also available through private and college-sponsored scholarships. Students may also qualify for a tuition tax credit through the HOPE Scholarship.

The Saturday workshop is free, and the information provided applies to other colleges in addition to Mercer. Reservations are not required. For more information call 609-570-3795 or click here.
