College graduation is thrilling but comes with many unknowns: Will I get a job? What will my finances look like? How can I pay off my student loans? These and many more can quickly bubble to the surface shortly after walking that stage. But before you get your tassel in a twist, you can proceed confidently, knowing that abundant resources are available to help make this transition to the “real world” a much more pleasant experience. Join the New Jersey State Library as they walk you through the financial side of post-graduate life in the “Financial Side of College Graduation” webinar.

On Wednesday, May 17th, you are invited to participate in the New Jersey State Library’s webinar discussing post-grad. The event will be held virtually from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. You can register to attend by visiting the Zoom meeting link here: Register – Zoom.

During this fascinating seminar, grads-to-be and recent graduates will have the opportunity to hear from Samantha Benson, a Training Administrator for HESAA. Throughout the afternoon, Ms. Benson will cover a wide variety of critical topics, including but not limited to:

  • Credit scores
  • Student loan repayment options
  • Aggregate loan limits
  • The cost of post-secondary education, such as law school and medical school

By the conclusion of the course, students and their families should have a clearer picture of what to expect upon graduation, as well as what steps can be taken to tackle and manage any financial obstacle that comes their way. Families will also walk away equipped with the resources necessary to set their financial future on the right path.

This event is hosted by the Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA), which remains devoted to helping New Jersey students and their families navigate the financial aspects of receiving a college education.
