Quick Access

SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. – High school students and parents interested in learning more about college financial aid and its availability will get the opportunity this fall through Lake Superior State University’s annual presentation of Financial Aid Workshops.

During these programs, staff from LSSU’s Financial Aid Office are visiting high schools around the Eastern Upper Peninsula and Northern Lower Peninsula to talk to families about scholarships, grants, loans and employment programs, and will advise students how to apply for student aid.

Emphasis will be placed on eligibility requirements, how to evaluate an aid offer, and how to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Submitting a FAFSA form is requirement for any student seeking federal and state financial aid. Participants will get an opportunity to ask questions.

“We encourage area families to attend one of these interactive financial aid workshops or to take advantage of one of the FAFSA Fridays at LSSU to get help with filling out the FAFSA,” said LSSU Financial Aid Director Katelynn Coon. “We will provide personal assistance during all of the sessions and an interactive presentation.”

FAFSA Fridays at LSSU are geared specifically to help students and parents in filling out information for a FAFSA form.

“Students don’t have to be planning to attend LSSU to come in for assistance on FAFSA Fridays,” Coon said. “We will have staff available each of the Fridays to provide one-on-one help as needed.”  Stop by anytime between 2-5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5, 12, 19, 26, Nov. 2, 9, 16, 30, Dec. 7, 14, Jan. 11, 18, 25, Feb. 1, 8, 15, and 22 in the LSSU Fletcher Center for Student Services.
