Annual FAFSA Workshops held to “Train the Trainer”: As students prepare for Federal and State Student Aid, it is vital for financial aid trainers to have comprehensive understanding on completing an accurate Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), DREAM ACT, How to Leverage Resources, What You Need to Know, and Why Follow-Up is Critical After Completing the FAFSA. One of the greatest challenges students’ face in higher education is not completing an accurate FAFSA, which can cause a delay or even jeopardize their financial aid award. In an effort to provide counselors, mentors, teachers, staff members, and partners in education with the most up-to-date information for the completion and submission of an accurate FAFSA, we offer this comprehensive workshop to provide trainers with the skills, knowledge, and resources in the financial aid world.
