PHEAA Information

Financial Aid Webinars for College Bound Seniors/Families

PHEAA is offering two webinars throughout February - one on Covering the Gap: pieces of the puzzle to pay your bill and a repeat of Understanding the Financial Offer/Award Letters as many students and families are receiving their offers, or have, and want to understand and review options for paying their balances. Both of these webinars will address those questions.

Covering the Gap: pieces of the puzzel to pay your bill

Understanding education balances can be confusing and whether you’re trying to address the costs or beginning to plan for higher education, this review is for you. PHEAA, represented by Linda Pacewicz and Daniel Wray of PA Forward, are offering one-hour webinars on the topic of Covering the Gap. These webinars emphasize best practices (such as seeking grants and scholarships first), reminds families about additional resources (such as payment plans), and touch on private/alternative loans as a last resort. The discussion will also include the basics of credit: what is a credit score, what factors impact a credit score, how can a credit score be improved and the effects on your borrowing capability. Event Dates
Wednesday, February 17 – 12:30 PM (ET)
Tuesday, February 23 – 6:30 (ET)


Understanding the Financial Offer/Award Letters

The Financial Aid Offer, or Financing Plans, that you receive to provide an idea of the costs associated with attending post secondary education can be confusing as each school formats their information differently. PHEAA, represented by Linda Pacewicz and Daniel Wray of PA Forward are offering a one hour webinar to assist in understanding and navigating through the types of Aid listed, what you are being offered and identifying the balances and next steps needed. Q&A interaction is encouraged. Event Dates
Tuesday, February 16 – 6:30 PM (ET)
Thursday, February 25 – Noon (ET)
