Free financial aid workshops set April 24 and April 26

How do you get the money available for college through financial aid? Lone Star College-CyFair can help with Saturday, April 24 and Monday, April 26 workshops.

Parents and students will get free, on-site assistance applying for financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA.) All workshops will be held in the Technology (TECH) Building at LSC-CyFair, 9191 Barker Cypress.

The FAFSA is used to determine eligibility for federal and state financial aid programs such as grants, loans and work study. Students should bring all 2009 tax information (w2s, tax return, etc.) for themselves and their parents.

Workshops are available Saturday, april 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Monday April 26 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and again 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in TECH 104B.
