CSU Dominguez Hills Offers Community Financial Aid Workshop

Carson, CA - In collaboration with the California Student Aid Commission, the CSU Dominguez Hills College of Education (COE) and the Office of Financial Aid are offering an innovative financial aid workshop for the entire community on February 9th from 4-7 p.m. in the College of Extended and International Education Auditorium, Room 1213.

The Workshop will present each of the large grant and loan cancellation programs available for 2-year and 4-year college students, paraprofessionals, and individuals interested in changing careers to become teachers.

All Workshop participants will be given assistance in filling out the Free Application
for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which in California is due on March 2nd. The required form and individualized help will be provided.

“Making financial aid available to our students is one of our highest priorities,” says Lynne Cook, dean, COE. “We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to offer this model workshop with the Student Aid Commission and the California State University system. It affords important opportunities to college students and those considering college.”

“This is our number one goal,” Delores Lee, director, Financial Aid, concurs. “We hope everyone interested in attending college in our region will attend to learn about all of the funding available to support their education.”

The Governor’s Budget for 2007-08 contains a $61.3 million increase in the
State’s Cal Grant Program to allow for increased participation and to offset student fee increases. It also contains a $2.9 million increase in funds for student loan cancellation for new teachers.

CSU Dominguez Hills is located at 1000 E. Victoria Street in the city of Carson near the junction of the Harbor, Artesia and San Diego freeways. Visitor parking permits may be purchased for $3.00 at the yellow dispensing machines at the front of each campus lot, for parking in Lots 6,3 or 7.
