College financial aid offers can vary significantly, not only in the total amount awarded but also in the types of aid offered and the conditions attached to them. Comparing offers from different institutions can be challenging. Our upcoming webinar aims to clarify these differences and provide attendees with the tools to interpret and compare these crucial documents accurately.
