Financial Aid 201: A Science and an Art? - Presentation

Financial Aid 201: A Science and an Art? - Presentation

With Jackson Marvel, Director of Financial Aid/Associate Director of Admission, The Hotchkiss School (CT)

Develop a more thorough understanding of the SSS methodology by reviewing step-by-step how a family’s estimated family contribution is determined. We will spend time defining and analyzing key triggers that will affect financial aid awards such as the use of COLA, having children at other tuition-charging schools, imputing a wage for a parent, etc. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the methodology (the science of FA) and why awards may differ (art of FA) from school to school. Be more comfortable explaining the aid process to prospective parents!
