Would you or a loved one like to get more financial aid? In this workshop video, Ben Kaplan shows you how to increase your annual financial aid award by thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars by positioning yourself (and your income and assets) for success.
First, Ben will provide you with an in-depth understanding of how the FAFSA and financial aid formulas really work... helping you identify the little things you can do that can have a big effect on the size of your award. Ben will show you how to avoid the common financial mistakes that most families make--misinformed decisions that reduce their aid awards by hundreds or thousands of dollars without them even knowing it.
Because financial aid awards are comprised of both grants and loans, Ben also reveals simple yet powerful strategies to get a higher percentage of grants in your financial aid package (money you don't have to pay back). What if your financial aid award isn't as much as you had hoped? Ben shows you how to appeal this initial award and get a college to supersize your aid package (out of their own best interest).
