We were recently invited to co-host First Gen Office Hour! This monthly Twitter chat is hosted by I’m First, a community committed to supporting and celebrating first-generation college students.
The theme of March’s chat was “decoding financial aid award letters.” We were joined by representatives from several higher education institutions to discuss the ins and outs of federal and state aid, EFCs, “the gap,” work study, and more. Our biggest piece of advice? If you’re confused about your financial aid award letter, don’t be afraid to ask for help!
