UNDERSTANDING YOUR FINANCIAL AID AWARD LETTER on March 14th at 6:30 PM - FOR SENIORS AND THEIR PARENTS
Seniors receive their Financial Aid Award Letter shortly after they get their college acceptance letters. A Financial Aid Award Letter is the notification that students receive informing them how much financial aid (both merit and need) a school is willing to offer. Reading, and understanding your Financial Aid Award Letter is a key part of assessing the cost of your college education. Unfortunately, there is no standard format for these documents which can result in Financial Aid Award Letters being difficult to understand.
Corinne Schell, Director of West Coast Admissions at Marist College, will discuss how to read your Financial Aid Award Letter and better understand your offer. She will talk about the various terminology used, how to compare awards between colleges, and how to appeal an award. It would be advantageous to have your Financial Aid Award letter with you during this session so all questions can be answered.
This will be a virtual event.
