The San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce has announced the date for its 9th Annual Student Financial Aid and College Awareness Workshop. The event will take place on Sunday, January 29, 2012 at the Alex G. Spanos Center located at 3601 Pacific Avenue on the campus of the University of Pacific in Stockton California. Registration starts at 8 am. The workshop will offer high school seniors, athletes, transfer students and their parents, free step-by-step assistance filling out the complex Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The FAFSA opens the door not only to free money for college through Cal Grants, but also to many other forms of financial aid assistance for paying college tuition.
The forum also features workshops for sixth, seventh, eighth graders, and all high school students and their parents so they can get an early start on how to prepare for their future. The focus is on what classes to take for college preparation, study habits, extra-curricular activities and how important parent participation is to a student's success. For more information on the event contact the chamber office at 209-943-6117.
