Burlington High School will be hosting two upcoming financial aid events. We highly recommend senior parents attend ( Class of 2012 ). Since both events are in January we felt it was important to remind parents before the December vacation. Please be sure to check out the side bar on the Guidance Blog for links to more specific information in regard to financial aid and scholarship information. Below are descriptions of each event:
Event: M.E.F.A. (Massachusetts Educational Financial Authority) Financial Aid Seminar
Date: Thursday January 5, 2012
Description: This seminar covers the financial aid process in detail. Carla Berg, Financial Aid Advisor at Bentley University, will be the presenter beginning at 7:00 P.M. in the BHS auditorium.
Event: FAFSA DAY 2012- http://www.fafsaday.org/
Date: Sunday January 29, 2012 2 :00 P.M.

• Guidance on the financial aid process and next steps after filing the FASA.
