Making the decision to attend college can be life changing. Once you have made the choice, you then need to figure out how to pay for it which, let’s face it, can be overwhelming. Many families are not sure how to get started. I faced many of the same challenges and—if not for an uncle well versed in financial aid—my household with little knowledge of the process would have led me to what we thought was the only viable option… straight to the job market!
Today, you don’t have to worry quite so much. Wells Fargo’s student loan division has developed an innovative tool outlining the financial aid journey in a series of short videos. I call it a “tutorial” on surviving the financial aid process. From the first video—which identifies that the journey begins with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)—to the last video about the importance of keeping track of deadlines, you will be in a better position to navigate the journey and get you closer to move in day.
So, where can I find these videos you ask? Where else? On YouTube or wellsfargo.com with the help of Mr. Fellows and Monte! For an engaging bird’s eye view of the financial aid journey in 5 steps, meet Mr. Fellows at wellsfargo.com/fivesteps. As you prepare for college, you will be happy you did!
