You PLAN in advance. You UNDERSTAND the financial aid process. You ACT early enough to be successful. Financial aid goes to the families who plan in advance ideally before December 31 of the child’s sophomore year of high school. This course will teach you the concepts and strategies that will help you maximize your financial aid by understanding the process and how implementing strategies may increase a family’s eligibility even if you have a “high income” or own a business. The greatest amount of financial aid goes to the families who act during the years before college. Remember, procrastination equals less financial aid. All schools are not alike, so it is important to know your options and opportunities. A free financial aid analysis will be available to all attendees.
