— HARRISBURG –— The public is invited to attend a free financial seminar from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 21, at one of HACC’s five campuses in Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lebanon and York. The seminars are open to anyone, not just students coming to HACC.

HACC professionals have teamed up to answer questions about the college financial aid process. Attendees will learn about:

n Different types of aid, including scholarships, grants, loans and employment opportunities

n Where to look for other sources of aid and what pitfalls to avoid

n How to compare financial aid offers from different schools and pick what is best for your needs

n How to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form and how to file it online

n Changes that have been made to the FAFSA form

Financial aid sessions will be held at all HACC’s campuses at the same time — from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 21. Registration is not required but recommended.
