Seminar Slated for Veterans Looking Into
Paris Junior College Sulphur Springs Center is sponsoring an information seminar for military veterans interested in returning to college on November 29 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. in the PJC – Sulphur Springs Center’s Room 1202. “Information will be provided on the first steps to take to apply for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and/or Dependent VA benefits,” said PJC Veterans/Financial Aid Specialist Jennifer Smith, “as well as what financial aid is available.”
Smith, joined by PJC Financial Aid Director Linda Slawson, will go over specific programs available for different veterans. Veterans have different circumstances and that means different criteria for aid. Those recently discharged, for instance, will have different criteria than those discharged over 20 years ago. There are also programs to assist unemployed veterans. Additionally, information will be given on how to apply for federal financial aid and how to get admitted to college. For more information contact Jennifer Smith at 903-782-0371 or 800-232-5804.
