College can be costly, yet the investment in your future can offer significant returns. Knowing what to ask your financial aid advisor can help you minimize the effect of college on your wallet while maximizing your opportunity.

You should be familiar with the FAFSA. If you aren't, then that is the best place to start a conversation with your financial aid advisor. From there, you can continue the conversation by talking about student borrowing, whether it be from the government or from private sources. Equally important in your advising conversation is a dialogue about scholarship opportunities. At the end of an advising conversation, you should have a pretty good idea as to how much college will cost. Want more tips for talking to your financial aid advisor? Check out this article.
