INTENDED AUDIENCE: Financial Aid counselors & Undocumented Student Personnel looking to build better strategies with their financial aid department.
Financial aid counselors play a vital role in the enrollment and retention of undocumented students. Yet many undocumented students still can’t successfully navigate the financial aid maze. Integrating highly effective and concrete steps in the Financial Aid department can make a dramatic difference. Let’s work together to increase award rates for the CA Dream Act and reduce the barriers to paying for college that so many undocumented students face.
As a participant, you will:
1. Get equipped with specific language and messaging that increases student comfort and participation.
2. Be exposed to key information and resources to include on departmental websites, student portals, outreach materials and student emails.
3. Learn to implement departmental practices that can increase award and paid rates for eligible students.
