Money Matters: College Planning and Financial Aid


January 10, 2013
The New York Public Library's Money Matters series are made possible thanks to the generous support of The McGraw-Hill Companies' Financial Literacy Now: New York campaign.

College is expensive but with proper planning, it can be affordable. In this workshop you will learn:

• The importance of the FAFSA form and what it means to families. 

• How to appeal to the school of your choice to receive more free money (grants and scholarships) 

• What steps to take if you have lost employment or are or have divorced 

• What the new tax laws mean to your family (Hope Credit, Lifetime Learning Credit, etc.) 

• How a PRIVATE SCHOOL can cost less than a STATE SCHOOL

• New changes to financial aid programs by the US Department of Education 

• Financial aid award letter analysis
