Student Aid on the Web (www.studentaid.ed.gov) is FSA's gateway to information about access to education beyond high school and to financial aid. The site features information about preparing for school, choosing a school, applying for school, paying for school, and repaying student loans. Self-service tools help students assess interests, research careers and campuses, plan for college, and complete the FAFSA. Mapping Your Future (mapping-your-future.org) provides similar information, but in a different way. Come learn more about the sites, and let us know what's missing: What do you wish students knew about financial aid when they first walked into your office? What's the best way to get that information to them? How can both FSA and Mapping Your Future better serve your students? Share your stories and ideas during the facilitated discussion that will follow the informational portion of this session.
