Event description

Description

Take an in-depth look at the financial aid process from a foundational level. Ideal for school counselors and novice admissions and financial aid professionals, this training starts at square one with basic terminology and breaks down the financial aid process into easy-to-understand segments including:

  • Define types of aid available
  • Understanding financial need
  • How need is calculated
  • Award Letter Process
  • Funding Options for Students and Parents
  • Understanding Student Loans

This training will also cover how to talk to students and parents about college costs, outline a school counselor’s role in the financial aid process for students with difficult or unique home situations, and review recommendations for engaging students and families in preparing for college financing.

While this training will touch on the FAFSA form as part of the process, this is NOT FAFSA trainingand will not delve into the form in detail.
