Richland One Offering Free Workshop for Students, Parents on Planning and Paying for College
Parents, do you need help paying for college for your kids? If you don’t have a clue where to start or how to get the money for college, this workshop – How to Plan and Pay for College 101 – is for you.
Richland One’s Guidance and Counseling Services Department is sponsoring the free informational workshop, which will be held Tuesday, March 14 at 6:00 p.m. in the Lower Richland High School auditorium, 2615 Lower Richland Boulevard in Hopkins.
Workshop topics will include the basics like scholarships, financial aid, reducing college costs and conducting scholarship searches. Parents and students also will get tips on ways to make a student stand out in the admissions process; how to increase the chances of graduating from college in four years, rather than five or six; the cost of private vs. public colleges; and other topics. A certified college planning specialist with The College Funding Center of South Carolina will be the presenter.
This workshop is for families with students in grades 8-12. Register for this free workshop at www.cfcsc.com or call (803) 798-0390. The workshop is sponsored in partnership with the American College Planning Foundation and The College Funding Center of South Carolina.
