Online Course | 2022 Practical and Tactical- Navigating Through Financial Aid Season
Aug 18, 2022 03:00 PM (ET)
Oct 6, 2022 04:00 PM (ET)
AISAP is proud to partner with Alisa Evans of Mission Enrollment on a seven-week online course designed to guide you through the rigors of financial aid season.
While this course is designed for active participation and live sessions, we understand that there may be instances where you have a conflict. All classes will be recorded and available to you within 48 hours of the live session.
Regardless of the financial aid platform your school uses, we’ll train you to prepare and execute your financial aid program in a practical and tactical way. How? By using proven communication strategies, file review protocols, checklists, and awarding strategies to align with your unique enrollment goals. In each class, we’ll tackle a different aspect of running a financial aid program. Not only will you have a one-hour live session but you will gain access to lots of sample materials, documents, videos, and professional support.
You’ll learn to:
Forecast your financial aid budget for the season ahead
Create and deliver communications to ensure families feel supported throughout the process
Consistently review and assess folders using Mission Enrollment protocols and techniques
Accurately assess applications from business owners
Successfully manage appeals
Create and deliver dynamic year-end reports for your HOS and Board
Each class connects to the next and you’ll be able to come back to these sessions at any time. You will find that new materials will be loaded from time to time to help support you in this journey.
