VSAC’s College Essay and Financial Aid Presentations Offered Online

WINOOSKI — Vermont Student Assistance Corporation offers two online presentations for prospective college students and their families to view in their comfort of their own homes.

How to Write an Effective Admissions Essay, available at, provides a brief overview of the components that are essential to producing a strong college application essay. The site also offers a variety of downloadable handouts, including a list of books on essay writing that can be borrowed from VSAC through local libraries in Vermont.

Paying for College, available at, describes the types of financial aid available to students, the schedule and process for applying for aid, how the family contribution is calculated, and more. The material in this presentation is condensed from the content offered at live sessions VSAC hosts every fall at high schools throughout Vermont.

Later this year, VSAC will offer an online presentation focusing on how to search and apply for scholarships.
