Planning how to finance a four-year degree has become a more prominent part of the college application process.
A new e-learning course from NACAC is now available to help college counselors and admission officers confidently field financial aid questions from families.
More than just a webinar or educational session, the online course—Financial Aid 101— includes eight easy-to-use learning modules packed with information on subjects like loans, grants, scholarships, and work-study. Informative graphics and videos break down key concepts, while quizzes help you measure your progress.
“There is so much misinformation about financial aid online and through word-of-mouth in our schools and on campuses,” NACAC CEO Joyce Smith noted in a press release. “NACAC created this resource to help counselors distill that information and offer students and families the assistance they need as they embark on the search for quality, affordable education.”
The course is $100 for members and $125 for nonmembers. Continuing education is available.
