LANSING —  Michigan families and students looking for help paying for college should save the date for one of MI Student Aid’s new financial aid traveling one-stop shops visiting this Upper Peninsula this month, according to the Michigan Department of Treasury.

Under the banner “MI College, MI Future, MI Doorstep,” Treasury’s MI Student Aid Outreach Team is visiting communities across the Upper Peninsula to educate and inform students and their families about options for paying for college. At each location, team members will provide assistance with scholarship searches, college financing strategies and state program eligibility look-ups, as well as staff a resource table with financial aid materials.

These programs are FREE and open to the public.

“Trying to figure out how to pay for college can be overwhelming,” said Anne Wohlfert, director of Treasury’s Student Financial Services Bureau. “Many college-bound students and their families don’t know where to begin. As the state’s go-to resource for college financial aid information, we will have staff available at these events to answer questions and provide guidance about paying for college.”

 MI Student Aid Outreach Teams will be at:
