END-OF-SEMESTER FINANCIAL AID PROGRAM TO HELP K-STATE STUDENTS EXPLORE AND REVIEW WAYS TO KEEP COLLEGE AFFORDABLE
MANHATTAN -- A financial aid program being offered by Kansas State University's office of student financial assistance will help K-State students make sure they are taking advantage of all the ways they can to keep college affordable.
The free program will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, May 6, in the K, S and U rooms at the K-State Student Union.
"We know that students and families already struggling in the current economic climate are concerned about rising costs for higher education," said Larry Moeder, director of student financial assistance and director of admissions at K-State. "We want to make sure they are aware of all the financial aid opportunities available to them."
Moeder said students are invited to drop by and meet with K-State financial aid advisers who will answer questions, review their financial aid opportunities and help them apply for financial assistance. Financial aid workshops, each about 20-30 minutes long, will be offered throughout the program.
Also on hand will be staff from K-State career and employment services to discuss summer employment and internship possibilities. In addition, staff from K-State's Powercat Financial Counseling will be available to discuss budgeting with students.
More information on the program is available by calling the office of student financial assistance at 785-532-6420 or on the Web at http://www.k-state.edu/sfa/.
