College tuition increases and government cutbacks in education funding can make sending a child to college seem like almost like an impossibility. But it doesn't have to be that way if you fully understand the process of college financing.
Patriot Federal Credit Union is sponsoring an educational seminar to help guide you through the college financing maze. We will review the steps you should be taking right now to maximize your child's potential financial aid. We'll also explain the ins and outs of the "alphabet" of college financing; FAFSA, COA, EFC, SAR...and why it is important for you to understand these acronyms and the role they play in financing a college education. If you are the parent of a student in high school (or any grade for that matter) that is expecting to go on to college, this is a "must attend" opportunity to learn how to be prepared for what awaits you.

While no one wants to be treated like a number, the truth is your credit score (frequently called the FICO score) is an important part of how lenders look at you as a potential borrower. But this number can cause an impact beyond the lending process employers and insurance companies have also been known to consider this number when it comes to offering employment and determining insurance premiums. But what factors are used to calculate this "mysterious" number? In this seminar you will learn the basics as well as some little known facts on how this number is determined and how you can improve or "hurt" your score.
