NEFCU college financing webinar broadcast now available
WESTBURY, N.Y. (5/6/11)--NEFCU, a $1.56 billion asset, Westbury, N.Y.-based credit union, partnered with Hofstra University to sponsor a college financing webinar moderated by Newsday this month. The one-hour webinar, “Get Them There! How to Finance College,” provided information on college-financing subjects that included: Finding scholarships, filling the gap between traditional aid and the cost of college, working with financial-aid offices, avoiding over-borrowing, and estimating the true cost of a college education. The webinar ended with a question-and-answer segment. John Beneri, senior vice president of lending, represented NEFCU on the panel of financial experts, answering questions from webinar participants. The credit union considered the webinar an extension of the education-focused products and services it provides. “That’s a big part of why NEFCU was eager to co-sponsor this event,” Beneri said. “With the entire college financing process being so involved, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and miss some great funding opportunities.” Those who missed the webinar can view it for free online until July 7.
