December 9, 2013

In a continued effort to help students and parents prepare for college or career school, the U.S. Department of Education has launched the Financial Aid Toolkit. This “one-stop shop” provides federal student aid information and outreach tools for counselors, college access professionals, nonprofit mentors, and others. Financial aid professionals may also find these toolkit resources useful.

The Financial Aid Toolkit, located at FinancialAidToolkit.ed.gov, is ideal for learning about types of financial aid, student eligibility, the FAFSA, and loan repayment.  This Toolkit has some excellent resources, including tips on hosting outreach events and sample financial aid night PowerPoints, as well as suggested messages for social media, emails, and newsletters.

To make it easy to find the resources and content, the Toolkit consolidates and organizes FSA resources into a searchable online database.

For more information on the Financial Aid Toolkit, read the Department of Education’s recent announcement, or check out the overview PDF.
