Event description

Description

Regardless of whether you’ve been helping students with FAFSA/TASFA for years or you’re just starting to get into your groove, these trainings offer an excellent opportunity to take a look and learn more about the most frequently used financial aid application. The training will take you through the financial aid forms, give you tools to practice more complex scenarios, and highlight potential challenges for students and FAFSA/TASFA filers.

These professional development opportunities are updated to include any changes to the FAFSA application for the 2018/2019 cycle, so even if you’re a FAFSA/TASFA pro, you may learn something new!

TG, a Texas-based non-profit with extensive experience in the college affordability process, will lead the four 3-hour FAFSA/TASFA trainings. You can choose to attend any of the four trainings as they will have identical information presented. Please select your preference on the registration form.

During the training sessions, participants will also receive additional information about the Dallas County Promise scholarship and college success initiative, which is set to coincide with the opening of the new financial aid cycle on October 2, 2017.
