A Night with Bill Smith:

Understanding College Financial Aid and Paying for College

Thursday, March 21

6:00 - 7:30 PM

 

Bill Smith’s presentation takes the mystery out of financial aid and college cost for students and parents. Learn about the different types of financial aid and how to choose a college you can afford. Understanding financial aid enables you to make good college choices and informed decisions to manage college costs. We’ll discuss how to identify your student’s need and merit

profile and learn how to match that with college awarding policies so you can identify affordable colleges.

 

Topics include:

·       Types of aid: grants, scholarships, work/study, loans.

·       How do colleges decide how much aid to give?

·       Need- and merit-based aid, what's the difference, how to get it?- - What do you need to know about financial aid applications: the FAFSA and the Profile forms?

·       Using net price calculators to estimate your cost after aid at any college.

·       Estimating the 4-year bottom line: how much will you pay for a college degree?

·       How can you estimate how much college debt you’ll need?

·       How can you decide if college debt is reasonable and affordable?
