Financial Aid is not meant to mystify you. Instead, it’s meant to reward you with some sweet financial support! Applying for financial aid can be a lot of work, but it can also save thousands of dollars in college costs. 

Join Lyndsay Johnson and her colleagues from the Office of Financial Aid to learn common myths, information on how to apply using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the different types of financial aid you may be eligible for. Together we will demystify this (not so) scary process.

We truly want to help you, even in some small way.

Recently, we hosted and recorded a very generic Financial Aid workshop designed to assist 
all high school seniors and their parents. We were thinking that this could be a way for us to lend you a helping hand. This workshop may be especially useful to those parents who are just now getting ready to file their FAFSA, or have recently received notice that they have been selected for verification.  

We would be delighted if sharing this video saves you some of your valuable time while also providing your student’s parents with:

  • A preliminary foundation and understanding of the basics of the Financial Aid process
  • A glossary of terms used
  • A familiarity with the different types of aid available
  • A list of items required when filing their FAFSA

We wish you and your students a wonderful spring semester and healthy emergence from the pandemic.
