Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority
College Access Month
High school students who are planning to attend a higher education institution next fall can find information and assistance on paying for college and applying for financial aid at more than 80 events that are being held statewide through the end of February.
Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) workshops include details on financial aid, how to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and financial literacy. The workshops will take place during and after school hours. To search for an event near you, go to http://www.kheaa.com/pdf/goto/accessactivities.pdf.
Gov. Steve Beshear has declared this February College Access Month and announced the launch of a new one-stop Web site to help students of all ages and their parents plan for college.
The site, www.gotocollege.ky.gov, is a single gateway to connect students to existing online planning resources and also provides the ability to compare college costs. The Web site, which was developed with no additional costs or resources, provides helpful information ranging from high school curriculum to guidance on how to pay for college.
The Web site has special sections specific to military families, transfer students, adults returning to school and online course offerings.
KHEAA is the state agency that administers Kentucky’s student financial aid programs and provides free college planning and financial aid information.
