The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) will host a FREE Webinar on Wednesday, December 7 on the essentials of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), while also highlighting application and program changes to the 2012-13 FAFSA.
The annual completion and submission of FAFSA is required by almost every college and university in order to be considered for scholarships, grants, Work-Study and Federal Loans (including Stafford Loans).

After the Webinar, contact COLLEGE CONNECTION at any time to schedule an appointment for college financial planning, including preparation and filing of FAFSA, the CSS-Profile, proprietary financial aid forms as required by the colleges, loan documents, scholarship applications (both private and college-based), and so on. [Also on the agenda should be the formulation of a comprehensive financial plan to carry you through four years of college, and beyond (including why it is so important to maintain and fund a 529 Plan).]
Remember, financial planning is NOT only for the Freshman year of college. The tuition bill must be paid every semester!
As always, The College Whisperer is here to answer your questions, to help you with your college plans, and to offer advice and support in all of your college-related endeavors.
All the best for a fulfilling -- and oh so filling -- Thanksgiving!
