For Release: 01/05/15 1:53 PM

College should be a time of excitement, growth and discovery, but for many it can be a source of great stress as students and parents try to find a way to pay for it. Fortunately, there is help available in the form of financial aid options.

To provide students and parents with answers to pressing questions about financial aid, KET presents College Financial Aid Call-In 2015, a one-hour, live special edition of Education Matters, airing Monday, Jan. 26 at 9/8 pm on KET. The program will also stream live online at KET.org/live.

The program features a panel of financial aid representatives from public and private Kentucky colleges and universities who will provide information on the availability of scholarships, grants and other financial aid and offer tips on applying for student loans. The panel will discuss general financial aid issues and field questions from viewers.

Issues discussed by the panel will include common application mistakes, documents necessary to apply for financial aid, types of aid, deadlines, and financial aid packages.

Viewers can also submit questions to @EducationKET on Twitter and on KET’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/KET prior to the program for possible inclusion on the program.

Education Matters “College Financial Aid Call-In 2015” is a KET production, produced and directed by Tom Bickel.
