Multicultural Involvement Virtual Series for High School Students

For many students and parents, the idea of planning for college can be vague or overwhelming until deadlines begin to loom in the senior year of high school.

The Multicultural Recruitment team at IUP wants to help. We are not just admissions counselors, but first- and second-generation college graduates who care about their students. Our team has over 30 years of experience helping people navigate the process, and we are confident we can help you as well. Join us for discussions where we will answer questions, share experiences, and hopefully make the pathway to earning a college degree clearer.

To help you through admission requirements, entrance exams, financial aid, scholarships, and college majors, we've put together the Multicultural Involvement series that will help you plan for college. You can attend any or all of the virtual presentations listed below.

The ABCs of Financial Aid

Tuesday, November 9, 2021, at 6:00 p.m.

Pursuing your dreams can be costly, but realizing your dreams is priceless. Learning the basics about financial aid will help you immensely during your college search process. Most students will utilize some form of financial aid (scholarships, federal and state grants, loans, and work study) to pay for their college education. Learning how to complete the FAFSA, apply for internal and external scholarships, find a work study job, and access alternative loans will help you realize your dream. Join us for this important conversation where we will have representatives from the Office of Financial Aid and the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. You will learn about important filing dates and requirements for aid, and have your questions answered.
