Title: Bridging the Gap Between Family Financial Planning and Paying for Post-Secondary Education
Thursday, November 16th, 2017
An educated citizenry is the bedrock of American democracy. Taxpayers financially support financial aid assistance to enable students to obtain post-secondary educations. Federal financial aid funding does not and was never intended to provide 100% of the cost for post-secondary education. All AFCPE members need to know what resources constitute federally-funded Title IV financial aid and how a student's eligibility for assistance is calculated. This session will help attendees learn how to estimate the Title IV federal funding to help clients and their children align expectations about possible funding assistance to cover the cost of a college education with reality.
