LHS offering financial aid workshop Tuesday

LHS News is a presentation of Ludington High School in partnership with Mason County Press.

LUDINGTON – Ludington High School counselors and the Michigan College Advisor will be available on Tuesday, Feb. 7 to assist LHS seniors and their parents to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The workshop will take place from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in LHS room 318 (the online classroom). 

Computers will be available for use and light refreshments will be provided. 

In order to create an account, the student and parent must bring their own Social Security numbers, their own phones (if owned), and their own personal email account information.
