Word of the Day Wednesday: MEFA Seminars
Each Wednesday, MEFA will feature a Word of the Day where we'll highlight a word (or sometimes a phrase) related to the college planning process. This month, we're focusing on vocabulary related to MEFA resources for families.
Today's Word of the Day is MEFA Seminars.
Last week we defined MEFA Webinars and how they can be helpful to families. Often families will ask, what is the difference between a webinar and seminar? A MEFA Seminar is an opportunity for parents and students to attend an in-person presentation on various topics related to the college planning process, while a MEFA Webinar allows families to view a presentation from their own home or office.
MEFA Seminars are presented by a member of the MEFA team who has expertise on a specific topic and who not only presents the seminar material but also answers any general and specific questions that families in attendance have related to college planning. Seminars are provided to families of all ages and touch on topics such as Saving for College, the College Admissions Process, the College Financial Aid Process and Paying the College Bill. These evening programs are hosted at various locations across the Commonwealth. To find a seminar near you, visit our Webinars page, where you can filter by topic as well as by location. If you don't see what you're looking for, check back often, as this page is updated frequently as locations and topics are added.
Why is this important to you?
The college planning process can feel overwhelming at times. MEFA Seminars provide you the information you need in a live, interactive setting, allowing you the opportunity to engage with the presenter and get immediate clarification and guidance on different aspects of college planning.
Remember to stay on track with MEFA as you journey through each step of the college planning process. We invite you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and to also sign up for MEFA emails. We'll send you regular updates specifically relevant to where your children are in the college preparation process.
