  • Where financial assistance comes from and how to maximize eligibility
  • How aid eligibility is determined and tricky caveats hidden in the fine print
  • The most effective way to appeal the initial financial aid award or negotiate for more funds
  • Effective strategies to employ when spending assets on college tuition
  • Key considerations when selecting the right education loan
