Understanding Need-Based Financial Aid
On this month's "Lunch & Learn" webinar, our own Ryan Fleming, V.P. of Eagle College Planning, will be discussing some common questions on need-based financial aid.
Over the past 11 years, Ryan has made a name for himself as a college planner in Columbus and the surrounding areas, but his true passion is helping families to understand how to mitigate the financial impact that college costs will have on their retirement. Ryan is an expert in helping families find strategies that will minimize their out-of-pocket costs for college, and allow them to save more in order to achieve their most important financial goals.
Regardless of your current income status, if you have children heading for college in the near future you will want to make sure to attend this eye-opening webinar to learn how you may be able to increase your eligibility for need-based financial aid. Here are just a few of the things Ryan will be sharing:
- The formula the Federal government uses to calculate your Expected Family Contribution (EFC)
- A LIVE calculation of an EFC, so you can see exactly what the government assesses when calculating this very important number
- A comparison of the history of 2 different schools and how they award financial aid
- A case study showing how (and why) different schools can award aid very differently to the same student
And if you think you make too much money to qualify for need-based financial aid, you may want to think again... You would be surprised which factors can affect your eligibility, and how just a few simple tweaks to your financial picture may qualify you for much more aid than you expected!
