Tackling the FAFSA and CSS/Profile Financial Aid Forms: Workshop for Parents of H.S. Seniors & College Students
Tackling the FAFSA and CSS/Profile Financial Aid Forms: A Workshop for Parents of High School Seniors and College Students
Many families make mistakes when filling out college financial aid applications. The questions aren't always as straightforward as they seem, and what you don't understand can definitely hurt you.
In this two hour workshop, we'll go through the tricky FASA and Profile questions that most often trip up families, discuss strategies for getting the lowest reasonable valuation for your assets, and give guidance on how (and when) to fill out these forms even when you don't have your 2012 taxes done, and probably don't even have the tax forms in hand. You'll also learn the key qualifications that might allow your student to get better aid.
