Troy University to host College Affordability Day

November 14, 2016

Troy University is hosting College Affordability Day events on Thursday, Nov. 17, designed to help prospective students learn more about scholarships, financial aid and other ways to make college more affordable.

“We don’t want anyone to be under the impression that the inability to afford college is a barrier,” said Buddy Starling, Troy University’s Associate Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management.

College Affordability Day will connect prospective students with experts who can provide insight into scholarships, student loans, financial aid and other resources that can put a college education within reach.

“There’s obviously not a magic solution out there, but there is information that we feel doesn’t always get into the hands of the people who need it,” Starling said.

TROY’s College Affordability Day features activities at the University’s Dothan, Montgomery and Phenix City campuses in Alabama and 17 other locations around the U.S. Prospective students also may view a virtual session online.

Application fees will be waived for those who apply for admission to TROY during a College Affordability Day event at a location or online on Nov. 17.
