uAspire trains school counselors and college access providers to support students through the financial aid process. Our online and in-person professional learning builds practitioners' knowledge and skills to guide their students through FAFSA completion, Student Aid Report review, verification, and beyond. Available nationwide, we trained 3,400 counselors in 34 states last year.
Each course gives you access to uAspire’s expertise from over 30 years of student advising and indispensable tools to use immediately with students and families.
Develop your skills and knowledge of the college affordability timeline and financial aid, with a student-centered approach. Learn to take inventories of students’ financial situations and specific needs.
You'll be able to:
Master this crucial financial aid form by practicing complex scenarios, learning to complete the financial section with confidence, and gaining best practices for working with special student populations.
Determine a student’s CSS Profile requirements based on their college list and family circumstances, answer tricky questions accurately, and explain follow-up steps.
Navigate students through the many steps and common challenges of FAFSA follow-up, including Student Aid Report (SAR) review and the confusing, often burdensome, verification process.
Help students accurately compare college costs and make an informed college choice by analyzing their financial aid offers. Practice using uAspire’s College Cost Calculator with real aid offers and student case studies.
Reduce “summer melt” by supporting students with the many financial aid activities they must complete over the summer to successfully transition to college.
Support college students with FAFSA renewal, bill payment, Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) in relation to financial aid eligibility, and knowing their overall student debt and loan payment options.
