The McNeese State University Office of Financial Aid will present several free financial aid workshops in high schools throughout a seven-parish area in October and November for students and their parents and current McNeese students to explain financial aid application procedures.
“We encourage all high school seniors, all continuing McNeese students and anyone wishing to attend McNeese for the 2020-21 school year to complete their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) in October of each year. May 1 is McNeese’s priority date, but October is when students can start the FAFSA application process,” said Taina Savoit, director of financial aid.
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.
For more information, call 337-475-5065 or drop by the McNeese Student Central Office located in Chozen Hall on the corner of Ryan and McNeese streets.
