With education costs rising year after year, paying for college is a concern for most families. Additionally, the financial aid process can be confusing, intimidating, and often frustrating. Here’s what you will learn during this 60-minute seminar:

  • How families of all income levels may be eligible for financial aid
  • Why sophomore year is so important
  • How to avoid costly mistakes on the FAFSA and CSS Profile
  • How private universities can cost you less than a state school
  • How students can potentially receive more free money and fewer loans
