Learn About College Financial Aid At Library Program

The thought of finding a way to pay for a college education can be a daunting task. College-bound high-school students and their parents are encouraged to attend an informative presentation, “How to Pay for College,” on Thursday, April 4, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., in the Meeting Room of Fort Bend County Libraries’ Cinco Ranch Branch Library, located at 2620 Commercial Center Blvd in Katy.

Brannon Lloyd, a college financial-planning educator, will provide an overview of the costs associated with attending college and will discuss ways of qualifying for different types of financial aid without getting trapped in a financial nightmare of high rate, high payment, and expensive debt.

Learn how to avoid loans, maximize merit-aid, and avoid pitfalls that may hurt a student’s eligibility for financial aid. Get tips on things to do to increase a student’s chances of obtaining scholarships and grants.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Cinco Ranch Branch Library at 281-395-1311 or the library system’s Communications Office at 281-633-4734.
