    Virtual Financial Aid Night
    September 15 at 6:00pm

    10th - 12th Grade Families: 

    Please join us virtually for a Financial Aid Night and visit with Gardner-Webb University Admissions. The presentation will be delivered via video conference through Google Meet next Tuesday, 9/15/20, starting at 6:00pm. The link for the meeting is listed below. 
    What to Expect:
    Our CFNC (College Foundation of NC) representative, Timeka Ruffin, will give a presentation on Financial Aid and Paying for College. She will explain how the financial and merit aid process works, touch on FAFSA (the Free Application for Federal Student Aid), and respond to questions from parents and students. This presentation will be focused mainly on seniors, who will be completing the FAFSA this year, but 10th and 11th grade families may benefit from building their understanding of this important process. (6:00-7:00) Following the Financial Aid presentation, our admissions counselor at Gardner-Webb University will share some information for students and families about GWU. She and a GWU financial aid officer will take questions on GWU, admissions, and financial aid. (7:00-7:30)
