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 about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to provide a course for high school students, parents/caregivers, undergraduate students and graduate students who will follow a fictional student named Max Student, applying to the fictional college named Central Commercial College. The course provides specific details as Max applies for financial aid and the application requirements, including repayment obligations, as a way to pay for postsecondary education.  This essential book about FAFSA, PLUS loans, and Pell grants provides a Federal student aid handbook for the financial aid process.  In this situation presented as one week during the financial aid process, some of Max's fellow students will appear to help demonstrate 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.
