Join the UAC and the Mayor’s Office of Education on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 9:00am at Drexel University- Creese Student Center for Financing College Success. Financing College Success is a full-day professional development seminar to provide updates on policy and legislative changes impacting students’ ability to matriculate, persist and complete college.

The Mayor’s Office of Education has launched its 2014 Financing College Campaign and will be holding a host of citywide events designed to help families learn how to finance a college education.  The campaign goal is to increase the number of Philadelphia students matriculating to postsecondary institutions with funding to complete their degree or certificate programs.

 The campaign emphasizes submitting an accurate and complete Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, scholarship, and other type of financial aid applications. The Financing College Campaign begins with a professional development workshop series to ensure accurate information is provided to college-bound students and families.
