Con­sul­ta­tion on stu­dent aid of­fered

Record Observer - - NEWS -

STEVENSVILLE — This Sat­ur­day, April 22, Col­lege Plan­ning Ser­vice Amer­ica LLC is host­ing a free, one-on-one con­sul­ta­tion for par­ents and 11th- and 12th-grade stu­dents who plan to go to col­lege and are in need of fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance. Dr. Kevin Bukat­man, of King of Prus­sia, PA, will be ad­vis­ing.

Ap­point­ments to meet with Bukat­man are nec­es­sary, and are be­ing ac­cepted by call­ing 610-726-1146 be­fore Sat­ur­day to sched­ule times to meet.

Bukat­man made a pre­sen­ta­tion about dif­fer­ent kinds of fi­nan­cial aid avail­able at the Kent Is­land Free Li­brary on Thurs­day evening, April 13, and the ins and outs of ap­ply­ing for fi­nan­cial aid, which in­clude a com­pli­cated va­ri­ety of grants, loans, schol­ar­ships and work study pro­grams. Bukat­man was par­tic­u­lar about er­rors many par­ents/stu­dents make in making ap­pli­ca­tions for aid, thus re­duc­ing fi­nan­cial aid that can be at­tained legally, and un­for­tu­nately, in­creas­ing fam­ily fi­nan­cial bur­dens. He hopes to ex­plain some of those pit­falls dur­ing con­sul­ta­tions.
