Paying for college sounds like a daunting task, but there are also so many programs designed to help make higher education as affordable as possible.
Patchogue-Medford Library can help you figure out the money madness at this Sunday’s Explore Your Options: College Access Fair event taking place at the Carnegie Library building at 160 W. Main St.
Three workshops scheduled from 2 p.m.-4 p.m. will help demystify the FAFSA form, explain student loans and go over 529 plans that can help pay for tuition. Each workshop will also have a different presenter, and all three will be available throughout the event for questions.
Want personalized help? Both a credit counselor and a college access counselor will also be available at the library for walk-in appointments at the same time as the three workshops.
The schedule for the three lectures will be:
2 p.m.-2:20 p.m: Don’t Fear the FAFSA
2:30 p.m.-3 p.m: The Truth about Student Loans
3:30: p.m.-4 p.m.: 529 Plans Explained and Explored
This event is free and is a part of the Money For Life Financial Literacy grant. Registration is not required.
