How to Find Your Best Financial Fit Colleges

Presenter: Seth Brecher, Edmit College Planning

Parents, what keeps you awake at night?  Is college worth the cost?  How will you pay for college?  Did you know award letters can be appealed?

Join us for a college finance workshop in partnership with Edmit, a digital college financial advising platform where you can check different colleges’ affordability including institutional scholarships and grants, evaluate post-graduation salaries, access expert advice on avoiding too much debt, and more (including FAFSA and CSS Profile support).

We will provide guidance on how to prepare for the FAFSA process, estimate how much your family can afford to pay for college and how to calculate the “net price” for college.  The Edmit team will also share how financial aid works at different types of colleges and how to identify and evaluate colleges that will be the best financial fit for your family.
