Fall Financial Webinar: How to Pay for School
Lakehead University and the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education (CFEE) have teamed up to present a series of financial webinars to high school students and their families. Webinars have been developed to target students transitioning into post-secondary education. Topics include "How to Pay for School", "Living a Financially Healthy Life", and "How to Manage Debt & Credit".
Attend the first financial literacy session on Thursday, October 26 from 6:30 - 8:00 pm, entitled "How to Pay for School".
Description: A post-secondary education in Canada is a significant investment and can cost $10,000+ per year. Join us to learn some of the ways you can pay for your education, important details about taking on and repaying government student loans, and the impact of being a student on your credit score. You’re in post-secondary to plan for your future, start now by planning for post-secondary. The goal of “How to Pay for School” is to help you prepare for your post-secondary education by thinking about how you plan to pay for it, and what the longer-term consequences of that payment approach may be. You will learn about some of the ways available to pay for your education, including scholarships and bursaries, loans, and government programs; some of the finer details of government student loans, related to both taking them on, and paying them back; and how being a student can affect your credit score, including ways to build your score as a student. Without a proper plan, the cost of a postsecondary education can feel like an insurmountable obstacle. Think ahead, so you can get ahead.
