In January, high school students and their parents can receive expert advice about financial aid and planning for college as the University of Hartford participates in College Goal SundaySM. The event will take place on January 29 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on the third floor of Hillyer Hall on the University of Hartford campus, 200 Bloomfield Avenue, West Hartford, Conn.
Students and their families can come to campus and talk with financial aid counselors and college staff members and receive information on filling out financial aid applications.
Often, for students who are the first in their families to apply to attend college, the process can seem complicated, especially when it comes to finding financial resources and applying for aid. Participating in College Goal SundaySM will give students and their families a helpful first step on the pathway to college and do so in a comfortable setting.
