February is financial aid month and, appropriately, we have a wealth of free resources to tell you about. The first is a free guidebook for the SAT and ACT tests and the second is information about financial aid provided by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators.
First, a free, newly updated SAT and ACT guidebook.
The Compass Education Group is offering for free its newly updated (2.1.21) Guide to College Admission Testing. The guide is 69 pages of information about the SAT and ACT aptitude tests and subject tests. The guide is available here.
Compass Education Group is a long-established, national company providing college admissions advising and test prep services. The well-known college admissions advisor, Lynn O’Shaughnessy (The College Solution) said she always looks forward to reading the latest update of the guide.
You will also find free access to webinars and other information at the Compass Education Group website.
Second, February is Financial Aid month, and to celebrate, the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators has assembled a collection of useful information.
For example, many people assume that they won’t qualify for financial aid because their grades are not good enough, they make too much money (or their parents do), or lots of other reasons. But, you won’t know for sure unless you try, and applying is free.
