College Access Pathways Day Set for April 25
The free event will help Buffalo high school students and their families to navigate the financial aid process.
Buffalo, New York – April 16, 2015 – Thanks to a $73,000 federal College Access Challenge Grant from the Higher Education Services Corporation, D'Youville College will provide college preparation and financial aid information to low-income high school students and their families.
“College Access Pathways Day” to be held on April 25, 2015 will help students and parents complete the FAFSA, the federal aid application. It's part of a comprehensive, year-long program to reach multi-ethnic families on Buffalo’s West Side.
The event is free and open to all juniors and seniors and their families who reside in the City of Buffalo.
The location of the event is the D’Youville Academic Center (DAC) on the Porter Avenue campus from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The Academic Center is accessible from the D’Youville Fargo Avenue parking lot and Connecticut Street.
“The primary objective for the project is to remove barriers that low-income students face by providing low-income households who have children eligible to enter college in 2015 with this special assistance,” said Jason Adsit, PhD, dean of D’Youville’s School of Arts, Sciences and Education.
In addition to FAFSA assistance there will be college preparation advisement offered during College Access Pathways Day.
