Financial Aid Night at Hopatcong High School

On Wednesday evening, December 11, the Hopatcong High School Guidance Office held its annual Financial Aid Night in the high school cafeteria. This year’s guest speaker was Mr. Michael Corso, Director of Financial Aid at William Paterson College in Wayne, New Jersey. Mr. Corso has an extensive background in financial aid, having held similar positions at Centenary College and Sussex County Community College. While the presentation was geared toward parents and guardians of current seniors who plan to attend college or trade school in the fall of 2014, the parents and guardians of underclassmen were also encouraged to attend.

Topics covered by Mr. Corso included the definition of financial aid, the cost of attending a post-secondary school, the expected family contribution, the categories, types, and sources of financial aid, and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Particular attention was paid to filling out the FAFSA. Other topics covered included outside scholarships, payment plans, campus employment, the CSS Profile, and additional financial aid websites. Mr. Corso remained a good while after the presentation to answer questions.

Admissions representatives from the following five schools were also available before and after the presentation to answer questions:  Seton Hall University, Wilkes College, Fairleigh Dickinson University, East Stroudsburg University, Caldwell College.

If you would like more information on this topic, or to schedule an interview with Cynthia Randina, Superintendent of Schools, please call JoAnne Murray at 973-398-8801 or email at
