The only thing scarier than getting into college is finding the money to pay for it. Never fear terrified parents (and students). Financial aid abounds if you know where to look. This lecture will cover how to navigate the scary world of financial aid applications, little-known strategies and fiscal resources and what to do if you don't get the scholarship you so desperately need.
* Where to find financial aid
* How the government decides how much they'll chip in for you or your child's education
* Hacks for becoming more eligible for financial aid
* How to access programs that the vast majority of students don't know about
And let's face it -- It's a lot more fun to muddle through tough financial questions together than to go at it alone. Join us for a night of financial aid Q&A with a heavy emphasis on the A.
(Please note this class is a lecture - we won't be filling out any individual financial aid forms. This class is focused on financial aid for undergrads.)
