College Access Center To Offer FREE “How To Pay For College” Workshop

Parents and students from Delaware County are invited to register for an opportunity to attend a FREE pre-Financial Aid & College Financial Planning Workshop featuring Chris Chaplin, College Planning Advisor for Clarifi College at the College Access Center of Delaware County on Wednesday December 10th from 6:30pm-8:00pm.

This activity is specifically designed for high school students and especially parents who may be wondering “how to reduce college debt, discover the real (hidden) costs of college, pursue additional financial aid options, or get specialized tips on their scholarship search”.

To register your child for this FREE event on Wednesday December 10th or other services, please call (610) 499-1391 space for this event including additional 1-on-1 counseling sessions with our staff and professionals will fill up very fast.  Refreshments will be available to participating families.

The College Access Center is the result of a unique partnership involving the Presidents of six local Colleges and Universities (Widener University, Swarthmore College, Delaware County Community College, Cheyney University, Neumann University, and Penn State University-Brandywine Campus).

This collaborative effort led to the creation of the Chester Higher Education Council, a nonprofit organization established to address the educational needs of county residents.  Their first major initiative was the College Access Center, located at 400 E. 21st Street (21st Street and Providence Avenue), a building owned by Widener University.

Now in its sixth year, the Center has become to be one of the most valuable places for up-to-date information about college admissions, financial aid, scholarships, and learning how prepare for life after high school. 

The Center also provides FREE college preparatory services to high school students including a weekly SAT/ACT Class conducted by Kaplan-Trained Facilitators, 1-on-1 Counseling, Homework Help, Tutoring, mentoring programs for young men, along with community workshops on admissions, financial aid, and scholarships.
