College to Host Free Financial Aid Workshop on Jan. 17

The College of the Canyons Financial Aid Office will hold its annual “Cash For College” workshop event, providing students and parents with important information about the various types of financial aid available to them, along with details about how to apply.

The “Cash for College” workshop event will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17, in the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC) at College of the Canyons.

The same workshop will be delivered in Spanish during a presentation being held in the Student Center cafeteria at the same time.

“We hope this workshop will help incoming students and families understand the financial aid process, which can be initially daunting,” said Tom Bilbruck, financial aid director at the college.

At the event, representatives from the college’s Financial Aid Office will be on hand to assist students and families with a variety of common questions regarding the steps needed to apply for aid, as well as how to navigate the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The “Cash for College” event is free and open to the public. 

Free parking will be available in all COC student parking lots for this event.
