As Financial Aid Administrators, we are faced each and every day with opportunities to help our students succeed. In these uncertain economic times, students and their families rely on us even more to guide them through their college career. The information we provide and the way in which we provide it can make the difference in whether or not a student earns their college degree.
Advising and counseling students and their families can be a burdensome responsibility for any seasoned financial aid administrator especially when complied with our daily job tasks. How can you ensure you’re assisting your students to the best of your ability? By taking advantage of training opportunities and sharpening our skills, we can guarantee that we are providing the most accurate information and in the most helpful way possible.
