Did you know that February is financial aid awareness month?

Montgomery College will be the host of numerous financial aid workshops throughout the month of February in light of FAFSA deadlines. The workshops will aim to help students understand their options for financial aid, how to acquire funds, and how to make the best choices when it comes to funding their education.

There will be six total workshops offered throughout the month. These workshops provide information from how to manage student loan debt to presenting scholarship opportunities to providing tips on maintaining Satisfactory Academic Process (SAP).
