Statewide Financial Aid Conference


The Minnesota Office of Higher Education has decided to no longer hold the Statewide Financial Aid Conference given that we and other organizations provide similar training and services throughout the year.

In the absence of the 2017 Statewide Financial Aid Conference, we want to be sure everyone knows about the available trainings, materials, and services provided by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education and others (see below).

These presentations help connect educators, parents, students and organizations with helpful postsecondary resources. Free publications on career awareness and how to prepare and pay for college as well as other college preparation and planning information are provided at these presentations.
