Non-tuition Expenses and the Impact on Financial Aid

The Cost of Attendance(COA) for an independent school in the majority of cases neglects to include non-tuition expenses. In this session, we will gain a sense of what those expenses are and what the overall impact is on your financial aid model. Strategies for how to overcome these additional expenses will also be covered in this presentation because we all know that the COA does not equal the EFC or expected family contribution.
