PHEAA Financial Aid Assistance Webinars

PHEAA's PA Forward Student Loan Program is offering a new series of Financial Aid Assistance webinars entitled Understanding the Financial Offer and Balances (the award letter) and Covering the Gap.  This is a "matched pair" of webinars, because students and families first need to understand the financial aid offer from the college, and then they need to determine how to cover the balance.

Webinar dates are as follows:  

Understanding the Financial Offer and Balances
Thursday, November 5th – Noon (ET)

Thursday, November 12th - 6:00 PM (ET)

Thursday, November 18th - 6:00 PM (ET)

Covering the Gap
Wednesday, November 4th - Noon (ET)

Monday, November 9th - 6:00 PM (ET)

Tuesday, November 17th - 6:00 PM (ET)

Virtual College Visits

As always, SHS is proud to partner with many colleges to offer visits from admissions representatives to provide our students valuable information about different schools. Now, more than ever when on-site visits may not be possible, we encourage students to take advantage of these visits which will be virtual. Students can sign up on Naviance for these visits and attend a meeting through Google Meets/Zoom in the library classroom while meeting social distancing requirements. To date, there are already 30+ colleges which have signed up for these visits offering options on both A- and B-days. For a list of colleges that are scheduled to visit and when please click here.
The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is continuing to offer services and assistance to students and their families. There are a variety of interventions and programs available, including counseling assessments through True North, school-based counseling through Pennsylvania Comprehensive Behavioral Health (PCBH), and monitoring and mentoring programs through the school. If you are interested in any of these services, please contact your child's school counselor.
