PS. Registration is limited and we reached maximum capacity at each of our earlier seminars… so register early to reserve your seat!

Synopsis

The sticker price for many colleges can be a real shock – the cost of tuition, fees, room, board, and travel often adds up to tens of thousands of dollars per year.  The good news is that most students don’t pay the full sticker price.  The bad news is that navigating through financial aid, scholarships, grants, and loans can be a real headache.  In this presentation, Dr. Quadrel will describe what drives college costs and what families typically pay.  He will also discuss available financial aid options to help cover college costs.  Whether it’s an academic or sports scholarship, a federal loan, or educational grant, each option has its own set of requirements and timeline.

An important part of the financial aid picture is scholarships.  There are many scholarships available from a variety of agencies and organizations, but most students just don’t know where to look.  Dr. Quadrel and representatives from Gesa will team up to describe some resources that will help make the search easier and more effective.
