Gen Tex Way To Pay Event This Saturday

Victoria – The Gen Tex Way to Pay Day event is coming to Victoria this Saturday.

This workshop is designed to educate college bound students and parents on how to apply for financial aid, the costs of college, and how to transition to college life. Financial aid counselors will be on hand to assist students in filling out and submitting the free application for federal student aid form.

Paula Cobler, director of marketing at UHV and a member of the Gen Tex Way to Pay committee, says that in addition to just filling out financial aid forms, additional information will be available for students to explore on how to finance a college education. “There will also be some presentations that they will be able to attend about how to pay for college. They will also be able to get help filling out scholarship applications, essays and that type of thing.” said Cobler.

The Gen Tex Day event will take place this Saturday from 10 am until 2 pm, inside the UHV University Center Building. The event is free and open to everyone. The University of Houston Victoria is located at 3007 North Ben Wilson Street. Gen Tex Way to Pay Day is a community wide educational event.
