The thought of finding a way to pay for a college education can be a daunting task. College-bound high-school students and their parents are encouraged to attend an informative presentation, “College-Planning Strategies,” on Wednesday, Aug. 28, beginning at 7 p.m., in meeting room 2 of the University Branch Library, located at 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.

Brannon Lloyd, a college financial-planning educator, will provide an overview of the costs associated with attending college. He will discuss ways of qualifying for different types of financial aid without getting trapped in a financial nightmare of high rate, high payment, and expensive debt.

Learn how to avoid loans, maximize merit-aid, and avoid pitfalls that may hurt a student’s eligibility for financial aid.

Get tips on things to do to increase a student’s chances of obtaining scholarships and grants, regardless of a family’s income or a student’s grades.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, see the Fort Bend County Libraries website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), or call the University Branch Library at 281-633-5100, or 281-633-4734.
