To celebrate February as National Financial Aid Awareness Month, the College Board has put together some helpful resources for students to obtain financial aid. This is crucial information that comes at a crucial juncture in the college admissions process.
I can remember our family's first pass through the FAFSA, other financial aid forms, and all the other details of the financial aid process. We were like babes in the woods, trying with all our might to do the right thing and avoid doing anything that could even remotely screw up our chances to maximize help with college expenses. It was an intense time.
