OCCC to hold financial aid and scholarship workshops this month
If you are considering college, but have questions about financial aid and scholarships, be sure to attend one of two free events coming to Oregon Coast Community College this month.
The college will host two “College Goal Oregon” events to help students complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) scholarship applications. The first will be held on Saturday, Jan. 17, at the Central Campus in South Beach, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with the next held on Saturday, Jan. 31, at OCCC’s North County Center in Lincoln City, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is the second year the College has offered this opportunity.
OCCC’s Financial Aid Specialist, other OCCC staff and volunteers will be available to answer students’ questions about the FAFSA and the OSAC scholarship application and help guide them through the applications. All current and prospective college students are invited to attend. Free coffee and other refreshments will be provided, and Spanish translation will be available at the North Center event on Jan. 31. Anyone wanting more information or who is interested in volunteering at this event, should contact Kimberly Jones, Financial Aid Specialist, at 541-867-8503 or visit collegegoaloregon.gov.
