UNEMPLOYED?

The Departments of Education and Labor have established a new web site to assist those who are unemployed. Indeed, many unemployed individuals do not know they may be eligible for Pell Grants and other need-based student aid. Most also do not know of the ability of financial aid administrators to adjust financial aid eligibility based on their special circumstances. The web site provides information on financial aid, labor tools, and other key resources available for unemployed workers.

FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE GO TO: http://www.opportunity.gov/.

 

  *Please note that the Financial Aid line may close up to 30 minutes prior to the counter closing to allow the office to close on schedule.
