Navigating the college financial aid process has been complicated and confusing for years, but the pandemic has made it even more so. High school advisors, already overstretched with caseloads as high as 500 students, are finding it challenging to keep up with the fast pace of changing requirements and trade-offs. Should students stretch financially to attend the best school they can, even if they are studying online? What scholarships and merit aid are available and which schools are most likely to offer them? What is the impact of test-optional admissions on financial aid? How has the pandemic impacted the financial health of colleges and how will that change admissions and aid for the coming cycle? Should students consider delaying matriculation for a year and working instead, or attend a community college?
This edWebinar, brought to you by the experts behind Edmit, the industry-leading college financial aid app, will provide high school teachers and counselors with an overview of the post-COVID college-finance landscape. It will also introduce participants to a FREE toolkit of digital resources and services that will support them in their work with students and families. This presentation will be hands on and participants will walk away with access to the tools they need to help their students find the best financial fit for their post-secondary journey.
This edWebinar will be of interest to high school teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, college advisors and counselors, and guidance counselors.
