Students can learn how to pay for college at financial aid nights


Charles County’s seven public high schools are hosting financial aid nights for students, parents and community members interested in learning how to search for scholarships and financial aid. Staff members from the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) will provide presentations about the college fund search as well as share tips and other resources helpful in the college planning process.

The following is a list of dates, times and locations. All financial aid nights are open to the public.

  • Monday, Nov. 2 – Maurice J. McDonough High School, 6 p.m.
  • Monday, Nov. 16 – St. Charles High School, 6:30 p.m.

During each school’s financial aid night, staff will be available in school computer labs to help students and parents register for their federal student aid (FSA) identification number. The FSA identification number is required for any student to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in January. Contact the college and career advisor at each school for specific information about financial aid nights.
