College-bound Payson High School students and their parents are invited to attend a “Making College Financial Planning Count” one-hour program on Thursday, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. in the high school’s auditorium.
A morning program called “Making Your College Search Count” will begin at 8:25 a.m. for juniors and any parents who can attend.
The evening seminar is aimed at high school students of all ages, from freshmen to seniors.
The seminar, produced by Making It Count, is designed to help parents gain an understanding of how the college financing process works — including options available to develop a college funding strategy, how to plan for and manage college costs and different types of financial aid available. Parents will learn how to send their child to college without risking their financial future.
Making It Count, an educational service provider for parents and students and a part of Monster Worldwide Inc., has teamed up with Bank of America to provide the free, one-hour presentation.
