The College Access Resource Committee shares their expertise with high school counselors, students, parents, and sometimes teachers about the availability of financial aid and the financial aid application process.
Our major event each year is the High School Counselor Financial Aid Workshop held each fall online and at various locations throughout Wisconsin. Financial aid administrators from around the state along with personnel from the Higher Educational Aids Board (HEAB), the Department of Public Instruction (DPI), and Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation pool their expertise and resources to make these workshops informative, engaging, and useful. The program is designed to assist those responsible for counseling Wisconsin high school students about post-secondary financial planning, including the financial aid application process, types of aid, and any changes for the upcoming academic year.
