The San Mateo County Community College District’s financial aid offices will be hosting its 2019-2020 Cash for College event on Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. -2:00 p.m. The districtwide event will be promoting the new roll out of the 2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and California Dream Act application which opened to applicants on October 1, 2018. Colleges across California host various iterations of Cash for College workshops and events to promote and increase awareness of financial aid to eligible students.
The event will include presentations and labs offered in both English and Spanish and will share information on the types of aid that are available to students, steps to applying for financial aid, important deadlines, and to assist students and their families with completing the FAFSA and Dream Act application. In addition, a resource fair will also highlight our campus programs such as the Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS), the Dream Center, the Guardian Scholars Program, SparkPoint, and our Promise Program to first time, full-time students attending Skyline College Fall 2019. The event is open to everyone and will include breakfast and lunch for all attendees. To register for the event, please visit: goo.gl/cGCnoo.
