Paving the Way to College for Students Experiencing Homelessness

In this interactive webinar, presenters will review important information about supports available to youth experiencing homelessness as they seek to attend college. Attendees can hope to gain a better understanding of:

  • Fee waiver options for college entrance exam and college application fees
  • The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) process for both accompanied and unaccompanied homeless youth, including the U.S. Department of Education’s early FAFSA submission timeframe and “prior-prior year tax information” practice
  • Higher Education Act provisions pertaining to unaccompanied homeless youth and the FAFSA
  • Options for seeking financial assistance beyond federal financial aid
  • Options for undocumented youth wishing to attend college

Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with presenters and fellow attendees through interactive polls and discussion periods.
