Financial Aid professional and founder of the The College Planning Group, is hosting "College Financial Aid Night" on March 29, 2011 at 7:00 PM at the Marshfield Country Club.
In this free seminar, Stan will help parents and students answers typical questions about the financial aid process. Here are the top 3 financial aid misconceptions that will be covered at the seminar:
1. Higher income families cannot earn financial aid
Many think that high income families cannot earn financial aid. Are you a parent who has been denied financial aid for your first child and given up? The College Planning Group deals with many parents that feel it is a waste of time to apply for financial aid, but this is absolutely not true!
2. Private colleges always cost more than state colleges
Although this is typically true, parents sometimes do not realize that private colleges have money to give away to qualified students. Watch a two minute video from Stan about how he sent his two sons to a private college for less money than it would nave been for UMass Amherst.
3. Financial aid is non-negotiable
Most feel that the financial aid package received is non-negotiable. However, for families with a good argument, there is an appeal process. There is potential for your financial aid package to be adjusted if the appeal is justified.
