Event Description

Learn how to avoid financial disaster as a college student--and learn about a new scholarship opportunity available only to those who attend this workshop!

 

College-bound New Haven high school juniors and seniors and their parents are invited to this workshop presented by Mary K. Johnson,  Financial Literacy & Consumer Advocacy Manager at Higher One in New Haven.  Ms. Johnson will also announce a new scholarship opportunity available only to those who attend!

Going to college is a significant investment of time and money, with long-term consequences.  Unfortunately, many students fall into the traps of overspending and credit card debt that can have dire impact on their chances of success in school and for a long time after graduation.  This workshop is intended to offer high school juniors and seniors the “heads-up” they need about financial literacy as they prepare for their college experience. Students will learn how to stay financially afloat with good money habits, including choosing and managing a bank account, and creating a budget they can live with.  Parents will gain insight into the financial issues that college students must cope with for successful outcomes.  

HIGHER ONE provides a full array of financial services including refunds, payments and electronic billing to almost 700 institutions of higher education, while also providing nearly 5 million students nationwide with a smart new way to manage their student loans and college expenses. Find out more at www.higherone.com.

Those who register for this important training will have the first opportunity to hear about Higher One’s new $500 New Haven Community Book Scholarship for New Haven seniors. You MUST attend to be eligible for this scholarship. Guidelines and application forms will be available at the workshop.

Space is limited, and registration is required at www.higherone.eventbrite.com or 203-946-8835. 

A parent or guardian must accompany students to this workshop.

Give a Ride, Close a Gap

In a blog describing the new $11 million Vaccine Access Fund, a partnership of LISC, Uber, Paypal and Walgreens, LISC's President & CEO Lisa L.
