College financing presentation slated for Midlands Technical College Parents learn how to

Midlands Technical College announced today that it has scheduled the Making College Financial Planning Count program for parents of students in grades 9 through 12. This FREE, one-hour presentation will be delivered to parents at March 16 in the college’s Airport Campus Auditorium.

Making College Financial Planning Count is designed to help parents gain an understanding of how the college financing process works, including options available to develop a college funding strategy, how to plan for and manage all college costs and different types of financial aid available. Parents will learn how to send their child to college without risking their financial future.

“A student’s entry into higher education after high school is a key transitional period for both students AND parents alike,” said JR Cifani, Vice President of Monster’s Making It Count Programs. “Our goal with Making College Financial Planning Count is to assist the parents by providing sound financial options and solutions for the major investment that a college education demands.”

Last year more than 500 high schools across the country hosted Making It Count’s college financing seminar. On average, parents rated the value of the ideas presented in the program a 9 on a 10-point scale. The program is presented in conjunction with Bank of America, one of the nation’s leading providers of education financing solutions and services for students and their families.
