Applying For Financial Aid Is Designed To Be Difficult

Even colleges admit that financial aid is complicated. If it weren’t financial aid directors wouldn’t need specialized skill sets to master the many aspects.

No one has to tell you how expensive college has become. And parents and students have many concerns about affording it.

Fortunately, there are strategies to answer questions that will prevent your student from losing financial aid eligibility.

Years ago what began as a fair and equitable process to provide low to middle-income families with financial assistance has actually morphed into a system that rewards students from affluent families with huge tuition discounts.

That is because college is a business. Like any business, they need revenue (sales, if you will).

Now that Covid took a heavy toll on cash-strapped colleges and universities, colleges are giving the wealthy even more free money at the expense of those who truly need it. This is unacceptable. Parents need a way to tip the scales in their favor!
