Calendar of Events

The decision to attain a college degree is both a personal and professional investment in your future.

At La Casa Student Housing (an initiative of The Resurrection Project), we are committed to increasing the number of students who earn their first college degree. Throughout the year we offer a series of college, financial, and career readiness workshops, events, and opportunities. In addition we participate in a number of college fairs, financial aid nights and FAFSA completion workshops in Chicago’s Pilsen community and throughout the state of Illinois. So, take some time to learn what you need to know about college and career opportunities. All events are open to students and parents at no cost, unless otherwise indicated.

(Charla Universitaria) Préstamos Estudiantiles para La Universidad: ¿Cómo Funcionan?
Apr 15 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

¿Es la contribución familiar más de lo que puede pagar? ¿Intenta valuar las opciones de préstamos que fueron ofrecidas por las universidades? Parece simple: pedir dinero prestado y luego reembolsarlo. Lo cierto es que el monto que tendrá que reembolsar resultará ser más alto que la cantidad original que pide en préstamo. Vale notar que en algunos casos, los préstamos estudiantiles podrían ser perdonados. El primer paso que deberá tomar para entender los préstamos es tomar conciencia del proceso que involucra el antes, durante y después de solicitar. En este taller introduciremos conceptos básicos sobre los préstamos estudiantiles, los derechos y responsabilidades del prestatario, tasas de interés, periodos de gracia, notas promisorias y opciones
de perdón de préstamos.
