PHEAA to Host Free Webinars to Help Students and Families Navigate the Financial Aid Process

The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) is holding two free statewide webinars in July. These webinars are to assist college-bound students and their families with navigating the financial aid process and to discuss PHEAA’s private student loan program– PA Forward, which is Pennsylvania’s state-based private student loan option.

The webinars will be hosted by PHEAA representatives Linda Pacewicz and Dan Wray, who specialize in financial aid. They will discuss how students and families can take advantage of the benefits of using PA Forward Student Loans to cover tuition gaps that other aid did not cover.

“The PHEAA Board of Directors is pleased to provide students and their families with the resources they need to secure financial aid,” said Senator Wayne Fontana, Chairman of the PHEAA Board. “By attending the webinars, they will not only receive important guidance on funding their educations, but they can ask questions about their personal circumstances. By the end of the webinar, they should be ready to begin this critical chapter in their lives.”
