Parents

  • 11th Grade Parents Financial Aid To Do List:

    • Talk to your child about the schools he or she is considering.  Ask why those schools appeal to your child, and help him or her clarify goals and priorities.
    • Attend college fairs with your child, but don't take over the conversation with the college representative. Just listen, and let your child do the talking.
    • Take your child to visit college campuses, preferably when classes are in session.
