The first Early College Planning Night sponsored by the Burlington High School Guidance Department was well attended. Over 70 Parents of students in Kindergarten through 8th grade were in present. Julie Shields-Rutyna from MEFA gave a very detailed and informative presentation. Many facets of financial aid were covered. Julie discussed the College Navigator Webs-Site which gives tuition prices, % of students receiving merit aid and % of students receiving need based aid. We encourage parents to further research this web-site. The other two hot topics of the night were the MassachusettsU Fund 529 Plan and the U Plan Prepaid Tuition Program.
For Parents that missed the event it will be televised and streamed on BCAT.
