r Financial Aid

PAYSON — This is the time of year that many high school students are thinking about graduating next spring and college next fall. To help students with the issues and decisions regarding college options Payson High School held an event Wednesday evening November 8th providing college and financial aid options. This event was part of Utah College Application Week (UCAW). The goal is to encourage and assist students in completing at least one college or university application. Particular emphases of this program are students who would be the first in their families to attend college, low-income students, or students who might not otherwise consider applying to college. The College and Financial Aid Night was for both students and parents. New to this year’s event is the invitation of junior high school students. What a great concept to bring to our community.

The halls of Payson High School were lined with tables for representatives of college and university options in the state of Utah with each discussing their particular institution of higher education. Trade schools and apprentice programs were also represented for much-needed craft jobs. All branches of the military were represented, except the U.S. Coast Guard, as a post-high school option. Several large businesses in our area were represented to share job and career opportunities with their business.

 

College is expensive, even though Utah’s Public Universities have the fourth lowest tuition in the United States, there were several tables dedicated to scholarships and financial aid. One computer classroom was used to help students and parents complete their Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA). There are many resources available to help students and that was an important part of this evening information for both students and parents.
