Imagine looking at homes or vehicles and obsessing over their details, only to then be told you had to provide your income and assets and THEN the seller would get back to you on the price they were customizing only to you. Seems crazy right? Yet that is essentially how the college pricing model works. No purchase -- let alone one as significant in amount and impact -- is so vague and hard to understand. In this session you'll learn crucial details about how financial aid really works, the differences in institutional policies, and how to help clients decipher college financial aid awards.

  • Describe the difference between the Net Price and the Net Cost of college
  • Identify the key questions clients should ask colleges
  • Evaluate and determine missing parts of college financial aid awards
