We’re excited to announce that we will host a financial aid Twitter chat with Seattle Education Access.
When: Thursday, October 4th at 9:30 a.m. PDT
Topics: Financial aid, work-study, and budgeting
SR Education Group believes that an affordable college experience contributes significantly to a student’s success. Students with a significant amount of financial aid graduate with less debt, can devote more time to studies, and go through college with less stress. That’s the elusive win-win-win.
Seattle Education Access is incredibly gifted at providing support to college students. They serve 500 to 600 low-income students every year by helping students find scholarships, work-study opportunities, affordable housing, and tutoring. SEA is so good at what they do that 90 percent of their students graduate from college. If you are a college student, you do not want to miss this chance to get free financial aid advice.
How Twitter Chats Work
Participating in Twitter chats is very simple. First, you need a Twitter account. Then you simply write your question or comment in a tweet and add #CollegeQnA to the end (capitalization is not important). To see what other people are tweeting, perform a search for #CollegeQnA in Twitter. If you want to address someone directly, add their Twitter username to your tweet preceded by the @ symbol. Here’s an example:
@SREducationGrp Where can I find a scholarship for single-parents? #CollegeQnA
We’ll see your tweet and respond:
@CollegeStudent You can apply to our Single-Parent Scholarship here: http://bit.ly/LRoJAS #CollegeQnA
