The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency will hold two financial aid seminars for high school students and their families.

The sessions at Penn State Greater Allegheny in McKeesport and Community College of Allegheny County South Campus in West Mifflin are being hosted by state Sen. Jim Brewster.

“Higher education has an essential role in the lives of students preparing to enter the workforce,” Brewster said. “It is important that students are financially prepared for this step in their lives.”

Although financing college or technical education after high school “can be very expensive,” students should know that there are resources available, he said.

A student aid expert from PHEAA will be at both sessions to present on the student aid process and how best to plan to pay for a student’s higher education, Brewster said.

The sessions are from 6 to 8 p.m. Jan. 15 at the Ostermayer Room, Student Community Center, Penn State Greater Allegheny, 4000 University Drive; and Jan. 29 at the auditorium, South Campus, CCAC, 1750 Clairton Road.

For more information, call Kathy Jo Osman at (412) 664-5200 or email at kathy.osman@pasenate.com.
