DEARBORN / Nov. 12, 2009---The University of Michigan-Dearborn will host a free Financial Aid Workshop for local high school and community college students and their families on Tuesday, Dec. 1 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. inside the University Center’s Kochoff Hall, located at 4901 Evergreen Rd., on UM-Dearborn’s main campus.  

Students who are interested in attending college will learn about financial aid opportunities, scholarships and the financial aid process, as well as explore options available to families facing difficult financial circumstances. 

Representatives from the departments of financial aid and admissions will be available to answer questions.

“In this economy, we are really working to get the word out to students and their families that college is affordable,” said according to Judy Tatum, director of financial aid at UM-Dearborn.  “Many families are unfamiliar with the resources that are available as well as the aid process, which is why we are hosting this workshop.”
