Parent to Parent – How to Cope with College Costs

You would think that after being in the financial aid field for almost 30 years that I’d be ready to send my son off to college.

Nope.

It was an eye-opening, and sometimes heart-wrenching, experience.

Luckily for me I had a few decades of experience to draw on to figure out how to pay for college. Most folks don’t. So, I thought I’d share some insights on what financial aid really is and how it works – from a parent’s perspective.  Join me for ‘Financial Fridays’ and I’ll do my best to help demystify the sometimes scary, often daunting prospect of coping with college costs.

If there are topics or questions you’d like me to address, leave a comment or shoot me an email at awhitmer@albion.edu.  I’ll do my best to help. If you have a specific question about your son or daughter, certainly reach out to my office at anytime (517.629.0440).  I have a great staff who truly love their work – which is to help student’s find the resources to make Albion affordable.
