For families with children beginning the college application process, navigating the financial aid options available to you may make your head spin. One option that should not be overlooked, regardless of income level, is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

This year, the Department of Education is making changes that will affect all students who complete the application for the 2024-25 academic year. In this interactive webinar, Chief Planning Officer Jeffrey Levine will cover the key changes that students and their parents should know about before the form becomes available in December.

In this session, you’ll learn:
