Pitt-Bradford financial aid to hold information nights

BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s Financial Aid staff will be offering free financial aid advice to college-bound students.

The financial aid high school night presentations begin in the next several weeks in Otto-Eldred and continue through the end of January 2016. The schedule is as follows:

6 p.m.              Dec. 9              Otto-Eldred High School Library
6 p.m.              Jan. 7               Bradford Area High School
6 p.m.              Jan. 12             Smethport Junior-Senior High School
6 p.m.              Jan. 13             Oswayo Valley Junior-Senior High School
5:30 p.m.         Jan. 14             Cameron County High School

Information covered will include the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), deadlines, and tips that will make completing the FAFSA easier. A counselor will also talk about the financial aid process and the different types of aid that are available to families and students. Finally, the counselor will talk about different situations that can affect aid, such as income, academic progress and whether or not a student is considered a dependent or independent student. There will be time for questions during or after the presentation.

In February 2016, the Financial Aid staff will offer two different FAFSA completion nights, one from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 11 at Warren County Career Center and one from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 18 in the Pitt-Bradford Sport and Fitness Center computer lab.

Those sessions will enable families to complete the FAFSA online with aid from the staff.  Those interested should bring their 2015 Federal tax return, if complete or their 2014 Federal tax return if the 2015 return is not yet done.  Families should also bring FSA user names and passwords, if they have them, and investment statements for assets other than retirement accounts.
