College financial aid seminar offered this month

Whether your student is in eighth grade, twelfth grade or somewhere in between, it’s never too early or too late to plan for college costs and Daniel Patti of DMP Asset Management will show you how this month.

Mr. Patti will present “FAFSA 101” on Jan. 8 at 7 p.m., with a repeat presentation on Jan. 27 at 7 p.m. The seminar will cover topics such as, why everyone should complete the FAFSA; what documents you will need; key dates not to miss – federal, state and individual school deadlines; and how to improve your chance of getting aid.

The FAFSA is the common financial aid application, much like the common application for college. The application process is managed by the office of Federal Student Aid (FSA) which provides grants, loans and work-study funds for college or career school. FSA offers more than $150 billion each year to help millions of students pay for higher education.

Federal Student Aid is responsible for managing the student financial assistance programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, which provide grants, loans and work-study funds to students attending college or career school.

This program is open to students and their parents at no charge, with no registration required. For more information, email Margaret Walsh at [email protected] or call 203-622-7915. To learn more about FAFSA visit

This program is made possible through the support of the Greenwich Library Board of Trustees and contributions from donors.
