The Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority (MEFA) has valuable College Planning Tools for all families. MEFA offers education programs and webinars on planning and paying for college, tax-advantaged savings plans, low-cost loans and expert guidance in financing for higher education.
Beginning on September 22, 2020 throughout the month of October, MEFA will offer free informative webinars and virtual community events on a range of topics. To register for an upcoming webinar or view a recorded webinar, please visit their website at MEFA.org/events

The CSS Profile is a different online application that collects information used by nearly 400 colleges and scholarship programs to award non-federal aid. (For federal aid you must complete the FAFSA form).
