Scholarships and Financial Aid: It’s Easier than You Think

Session Description

If paying for college is simple to figure out, why am I so confused?

This session is designed to help you understand the lay of the land. Come and hear an overview of the entire financial aid process. I will walk you through the financial aid process, both merit and need based aid based on family financial circumstances. I will provide you with a timeline of when you should begin to investigate options for funding your student’s college experience. We will look at what are realistic award amount expectations. You will walk away with tools and resources necessary to make you a “master” of the scholarship and financial aid process.
