Treasury Program Go-To Resource for Learning How to Pay for College

download (2)LANSING, Mich. – Michigan families and students looking for help paying for college should save the date for one of MI Student Aid’s financial aid traveling one-stop shops visiting the Upper Peninsula this month, according to the Michigan Department of Treasury (Treasury).

MI Student Aid’s Outreach Team is visiting communities across the Upper Peninsula to educate and inform students and their families about options for paying for college. At each location, team members will provide assistance with scholarship searches, college financing strategies and state program eligibility look-ups, as well a resource table with financial aid materials.

These programs are FREE and open to the public.

“Identifying ways to pay for college can be overwhelming,” said acting Deputy State Treasurer Anne Wohlfert, who oversees Treasury’s student finance programs. “Students and families are often confused as to where they can access resources. As the state’s go-to resource for college financial aid information, we will have staff available at these events to answer questions and provide guidance about paying for college.”
