“Funding Your College Education,” a workshop geared toward high school students and their parents, will be the theme of a workshop Wednesday sponsored by the city of Pleasanton.
Andrea Silas, a UC Berkeley financial aid advisor, will talk about the basics of financial aid, how and when to apply, who qualifies, and how eligibility is determined.
Information and resources for student aid opportunities from the federal government, the state of California, post-secondary institutions and private sources also will be provided.
The workshop, part of the city's community education series, is free and will be held from
7-8:30 p.m. in the large meeting room of the Pleasanton library, 400 Old Bernal Ave. Registration is recommended. Go to pleasantonfun.com and enter course code #63580.
