College Financial Aid Workshop Scheduled at Knox High School

College financial aidGet answers to all of your questions about applying for financial aid during an upcoming workshop at Knox High School. Ancilla College Executive Director of Admissions Eric Wignall says filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA makes you eligible for need-based assistance, including student loans and state and federal grants.

Wignall says there’s lots of financial aid available to help offset the cost of college.

“You never have to pay back a grant or state aid that is based on your income level. If you don’t think you’ve got enough money for college, that means you may be able to qualify for supplemental grants from the state and federal government, whether it’s a Pell Grant or other programs we have out there. That’s money you can apply toward going to school,” Wignall said.

Ancilla College is hosting a series of free college financial aid workshops in the coming weeks. The first one is Wednesday, Jan. 21 at 6 p.m. CST in Knox High School cafeteria and is open to anyone with questions about the process.
