More than 60 colleges, universities, and technical and trade schools have been invited to participate in Paul D. Camp Community College’s College Night on Tuesday, Oct. 3, from 7 to 8:30 the Regional Workforce Development Center, 100 North College Drive, Franklin.

“Participants will be able to get vital information about what these schools have to offer,” said Sherri Ward, a recruitment and admissions specialist for Paul D. Camp. “In addition, they will have the convenience of receiving one-on-one help filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by coming to the earlier event as well.”

The FAFSA Night Out event will run from 5 to 7 p.m. at the workforce center for high school seniors and parents. PDCCC Financial Aid Coordinator Teresa Harrison said, “We will have financial aid professionals available to answer questions and help guide participants through filing the 2018-19 FAFSA.”  She recommends allowing an hour to get the filing process completed. “However, there will be no early admittance to the College Night event,” she said. “That will begin promptly at 7.”

Attendees need to bring all tax and income information for 2016 for students and parents to file for assistance.

There are no fees for either event, and registration is not required. For more information, call Chris Ricks, 569-6719, or Sherri Ward, 925-6321.
