The earlier you can get a start on your college application process, the better,” Case said. “So much changes year to year when it comes to going to a college or university from financial aid programs to the admissions processes so the earlier you can start the better.”

Sessions will focus on a variety of topics ranging from the application process to campus involvement.

Parents are invited to attend. There will be drop-in financial aid sessions before and after lunch with financial aid advisors from each institution.’

Early online registration closes at the close of business Thursday. Walk-ins can register the day of the event at 8 a.m.
