You Can Afford College If…Wednesday, April 26, 6:30 pm, Gleason Public Library This course, to be held at the Gleason Library in Carlisle, will teach you the concepts and strategies that will help you maximize financial aid for your child by understanding the process, and how implementing strategies may increase a family’s eligibility even if you have a “high income” or own a business. The greatest amount of financial aid goes to the families who act in the years before college. REMEMBER: Procrastination equals less financial aid. All schools are not alike, so it is important to know your options and opportunities. A free financial aid analysis will be available to all attendees. This is a free event. Registration is required; please register at gleasonlibrary.org or call 978-369-4898.
