Click here to access the resource.
Accessing financial aid can be a barrier to higher education, especially for low-income populations. By providing Financial Aid Training for high school counselors and financial planners, financial aid information nights for students and parents, and FAFSA completion workshops, FAFSA comple¬tion rates for Shasta County, Califor¬nia, seniors have gone from the low 20% range to 66.5% in ten years. This workshop provides an overview of the holistic approach to financial aid uti¬lized by the College OPTIONS Financial Aid Services Team. Materials, tools and event outlines will be highlighted and shared.
