The McNeese State University Office of Financial Aid will present several free financial aid workshops at area high schools in October for students and their parents to explain financial aid application procedures.
“We encourage all high school seniors and anyone wishing to attend McNeese for the 2023-24 school year to complete their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) in October of each year. May 1 is McNeese’s priority date for financial aid but October is when students can start the FAFSA application process,” said Taina Savoit, financial aid director.
Five regional workshops will be offered at night for students from any high school and their families to attend.
Savoit said both students and their parents are encouraged to attend the workshops to learn more about eligibility, the application process and requirements and the timeline to apply for financial aid.
