Financial Aid 101 Seminar

The challenge of filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be explained at Molloy College's financial aid seminar. The seminar is designed for parents who expect to be applying for financial aid for their children. "Financial Aid 101" is set for 7-8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, on Molloy's Rockville Centre campus. The seminar is open to all- you do not have to be attending Molloy to attend the seminar!

Seminar participants will get an in-depth look at the FAFSA and receive an explanation of the logic behind the questions. We will provide tips on how to complete the form. In addition, we will review the financial aid process, explain how financial aid awards are determined, and discuss the available types of financial aid.

FAFSA is the first step in the financial aid application process. Families need it to apply for federal student financial aid, such as the Pell Grant, student loans and college work-study. In addition, most states and schools use FAFSA information to award their financial aid. Molloy College recommends that the FAFSA be completed by January for fall enrollment.
