Shift Summit 2021 | Strategic Financial Aid: A Guided Tour of the Student Roadmap
Bakersfield College has a secret weapon — Financial Aid Director Jennifer Achan. In an effort to help students understand how units taken per term affects their aid eligibility over time, Achan and the financial aid office have developed a system that teaches students how to maximize funding. The Bakerfield College aid office realized that most students don't understand how additional units taken at the right time can strategically save their financial aid and leave room for when/if they transfer. In this session, attendees will learn how to provide your students with the knowledge they need to plan out their college career and its direct impact to their financial aid eligibility.
