 A message from AARAO- Post Secondary Schools Virtual Fair!

We hope you have been exploring your post-secondary options since the EXPO Day last week.

This is a reminder of the Virtual Hangout Session TONIGHT Oct. 7th from 9-11PM. There will be reps available to answer all out-of-province questions. So, if you are thinking of going to a school outside of Atlantic Canada this would be an important session to attend.

PLEASE REMEMBER that ANY interested student from ANY region is welcomed to participate, so if you live in Atlantic Canada and want to join in - LET'S HANG!

 The event will take place in the AARAO Kumospace Halls A - J. Each Hall has 5 post-secondary reps ordered alphabetically A-Z.

Student Financial Assistance has launched a new video/presentation as well as virtual Question and Answer Sessions that students can register for if they have general questions regarding student financial assistance.  Note that these are not intended for file specific questions.  Individuals can register by visiting their website and following the relevant links. Prior to registering, student financial assistance is asking the individual to watch a 14-minute pre-recorded presentation titled Student Financial Assistance for Full-Time Post-Secondary Students.

 

This presentation is really well built. It explains the funding programs, eligibility, application and assessment process related to student financial services. A nice resource to share with your students.
