Virtual Financial Aid Appointment

Virtual Financial Aid Appointment

You and your family are facing important financial and personal decisions about your education. A college degree is an investment that will benefit you for a lifetime. Ensuring that you have the financial information you need to make that decision is crucial to your future success. These 30-minute financial aid appointments, designed for admitted seniors and their families, are created to meet you where you are in the process, help you navigate the FAFSA, explain estimated financial aid offers, explore financial aid resources that are available, and answer any questions you might have. 

Click here and select a time slot on our Financial Aid Educator’s calendar that works best for you. Specify in the description if you prefer a Zoom session or would like a telephone call. Our Educator will get back to you with the appointment confirmation.
