Effective Financial Aid Strategy and Execution

Crafting a financial aid program that is successful from both mission and business standpoints can be challenging. It’s important for schools to define their financial aid philosophy and create boundaries that help school leaders execute the program well — and that provide families with support beyond the initial admissions process. During this pre-conference, you will gain knowledge of best practices and use tools that empower you to address the challenges associated with inclusive and complex financial aid policies. These practices and tools can help anyone who manages any part of the financial aid process improve the aid program and contribute to vital school goals. Presenters: Liz Maher (Director, Accounting and Tax Programs, NBOA) and Alisa Evans (Founder & CEO, Mission Enrollment).
