Why uAspire?

I choose to work at uAspire because I believe every student needs to be aware of the financial aid process, costs of college, and debt implications of their college decision. Through the education of students, training of practitioners, and most importantly, leveraging our experiences to help reduce systemic barriers at the higher ed, state, and federal level - we can make a college education and the benefits that come with it more accessible.
