College Bound?

Ben Rohr Craig High School Graduation 06/09Congratulations!
Summer is a critical time. Students have the time to reflect on their transition to college but are cut off from the guidance they had during high school. “Summer melt” refers to the 10% (as high as 45% in some cases) of incoming college freshmen who fail to show up for classes in the fall. One of the obstacles students and parents face is the confusing subject of finances/loans.
The Foundation Center  is offering 2 free webinars that may be helpful:
Getting A Grip on Your Student Loans  17 June  1:00-2:00 pm ET
Focus on Higher Education  20 June  2:00-3:00 pm ET
