On this March 12, 2014 episode we discuss the importance of the filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA ASAP with Andrew Viscariello of Black Hawk College. In addition, we are discussing three appeal types when it comes to you or your students financial aid.
Guided by we talk with Mary Lawson, Associate Director of Financial Aid at Western Illinois University (@WIUNews) , First we cover the Estimated Cost of Attendance, or ECA/COA appeals, and how to appeal that if you feel the cost profile is too low. Next, she discusses how to appeal your initial Expected Family Contribution number, or EFC and your Financial Aid Award Letter, if it does not reflect your current financial circumstances.
