The fair is free and open to the public, but high school seniors and their parents are especially encouraged to attend. The city-wide Fair will be valuable to anyone considering higher education.

“The Financial Aid Fair is geared at educating students and parents about the funds available to help pay for higher education expenses and the many resources used to find and apply for aid. For this year, we are concentrating on educating students about student loans and borrowing conservatively to help maintain a good credit history,” explained Maria Isabel Woods, Office of Financial Aid associate director.
