Demystifying FAFSA: Tools to Help Your Students Apply
Date/Time: September 30, 2020, On-Demand
Finding Funding for College
Many students and families struggle with planning to pay for higher education, yet research shows that each year, students leave billions of dollars in Federal Aid unclaimed. The FAFSA can feel daunting, complicated and overwhelming in the best of times. In today’s swirl of uncertainty, the dream of college might seem completely out of reach for many students.
It doesn’t have to be this way – educators already know the importance of empowering students with knowledge, and figuring out how to pay for college is no different. There are resources and strategies available to demystify the FAFSA and empower students to take their financial aid into their own hands. And EVERFI is here to help with a High School Financial Wellness Suite that offers free online and offline tools educators can use to teach students about Financial Aid, the FAFSA, Student Loans, and important financial topics.
Join former Senior Seminar teacher and current EVERFI Resource Specialist Lauren Pingul and guest educators in a discussion about how to decode the FAFSA for your students and their families. You’ll hear strategies for increasing application completion rates in your school and get free access to digital resources that will help students understand how to responsibly and effectively finance their higher education.
Attendees will receive:
- A certificate for 1 hour of professional learning
- Access to digital resources and ongoing training and support
