PHEAA to Host “Borrowing for Higher Education” Webinar Series

posted: September 21, 2020

PHEAA today announced that the Agency will host a series of statewide virtual financial aid webinars focused on student loan borrowing, beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, September 22, 2020 at 6PM (ET).

While PHEAA encourages students to consider borrowing money to pay for college only as a last resort, many students and families discover that grants, scholarships, work-study, savings, PA529, and other funding sources are insufficient to meet their total cost of attendance.

Linda Pacewicz and Dan Wray of PHEAA’s PA Forward Private Student Loan Program will host the webinars, providing an in-depth look at federal and private education loans, including how to calculate the amount to borrow, understanding loan terms and conditions, navigating the application process, keeping an eye on debt levels while attending college, and effectively managing debt after graduation.

Event Dates: 

  • Tuesday, September 22 at 6 PM (ET)
  • Wednesday, September 23 at 12 PM (ET)  
  • Tuesday, September 29 at 12 PM (ET)  
  • Thursday, October 1 at 6 PM (ET) 

Students and families can participate in a webinar by registering here (https://pheaa-events500.webex.com/mw3300/mywebex/default.do?siteurl=pheaa-events500).  Please see attached flyer.

Students and families are also encouraged to follow PHEAA on Facebook at facebook.com/pheaa.aid or Twitter at twitter.com/pheaaaid and joining the conversation with the hashtag #PHEAAFinAid.
