Deciphering Your Financial Aid Offers
Webinar March 15, 2022 for Senior Families
Materials referenced and shared during the webinar: Deciphering Your Financial Aid Resources & Links 3.15.2022
Puzzled by your college financial aid offers? There isn't much standardization between colleges, so making sense of the terms can be very confusing. Some of the items might be free money and others might be money you will have to pay back, so you want to make absolutely certain you know which is which. Two financial aid experts from Cascadia College walked us through a sample offer, answered questions, and advised what to do if your current circumstances aren't reflected in your FAFSA numbers.
