Understanding College Costs and Financial Aid Desription
College financial aid award letters are often difficult to understand making it hard for students and parents to calculate the real cost of college and compare school to school. In this session we will review actual award letters (maybe even yours) and show you how to translate them into real numbers that you can understand and compare.

After the award letter review we will discuss how you should go about requesting additional aid if you feel the current offers are not sufficient. We have decades of experience as high level decision makers in the financial aid office and have reviewed thousands of financial aid appeals over the years. There is definitely a right way and a wrong way to request additional assistance and we will show you how to skillfully navigate the process.
