This comprehensive weekly workshop kit is provided as a participant guide and is organized in the order of how financial aid is generally processed at most schools.

The workshop materials consist of a large three-ring binder with loose-leaf pages to follow one student named Max Student, and one college named Central Commercial College, as Max applies for financial aid and the college processes his aid.    In this situation presented as one week during the financial aid process, some of Max's fellow students will appear to help demonstrate to you the various scenarios that can occur as you process Federal student financial aid at your school of choice. 

The loose-leaf pages include text, tables to emphasize points, some presentation slides, worksheet examples (some with sample data completed), graphics, call-out boxes, definitions, and regulatory information that should help the reader compete the necessary paperwork for submitting a financial aid application.  

This authoritative workshop would be helpful to high school guidance counselors assisting prospective students with the financial aid process, academic and vocational school financial aid offices, high school parents, and high school students as they engage with this process to gain additional education for their career paths to the future. 

The binder is packaged with tabbed section pages to separate the process locations to include the following:
