With insight and humor, Jodi Okun takes you inside the often murky world of college financing. First as a financial aid consultant at Occidental and Pitzer colleges, and then in her own successful consulting business, College Financial Aid Advisors (CFAA), Jodi learned firsthand the struggles families endure to find financing and pay for college.

In Secrets of a Financial Aid Pro, she demystifies the process and presents sensible solutions any family can use as they go through what can be a complicated and intimidating affair. No matter where you are in the financing pipeline, this book will be an invaluable resource.

  • Learn how to find and apply for every type of financial aid, including FAFSA, grants, scholarships, and loans.
