10 keys to maximize financial aid

Wondering how financial aid is calculated and if you'll qualify? In this one hour workshop we demystify the world of financial aid. Middle class families who fear they won't be eligible for any financial aid dollars will quickly learn how to plan ahead in order maximize grants and scholarships.

  • Why it's imperative to plan ahead in order to get the most out of the financial aid system
