Attention Seniors -- Financial Aid Information from HESAA:
For many years the New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA) has prepared a Student Loan Guide to be distributed to New Jersey high school students. In January 2013 legislation was passed by the New Jersey Legislature and signed into law by Governor Christie requiring HESAA to prepare a similar brochure and directing high schools to annually disseminate it to each student in the 11th and 12th grades.
E-booklet of the Student Loan Guide
HESAA is the only state authority with the sole mission of providing students and families with the information and resources necessary to attain an education beyond high school. Students and parents are encouraged to learn more about HESAA's programs and services.
The NJSCA "College Open House" list for NJ, DE, DC, MD, NY, PA & VA is now updated:
New Jersey College Open Houses
Pennsylvania College Open Houses
Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, New York and Virginia College Open Houses
Be sure to call the college in advance to verify the date and time as some of these dates may change. Some schools request that you register before coming to an open house. Many schools besides those listed offer open houses. Call your prospective colleges and universities for their schedule.
It is an excellent idea to include both open houses and college tours in your college exploration. The open house allows you to see many of the activities available on campus while the traditional college tour lets you experience the college in a more typical environment.
