Navigating College Financial Aid Letters


It's the that time of year again, when high school seniors hear back from college admissions and determine the next chapter of their learning lives. But making that decision is not always easy, especially when it comes to deciding which college is offering the best financial deal. This hour, we hear from a Vermont student who has four college acceptances she is trying to navigate, and we learn what support is available to help guide her and other students through the process. Our guests are:

  • Audrey Grant, Student at Hazen Union High School
  • Lindsay Carpenter, Outreach Counselor at the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC)
  • Marilyn Cargill, Vice President of Financial Aid Services, Research and Marketing at the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC)
  • Amy Kolb Noyes, Reporter for Vermont Public Radio

Find all of Amy Kolb Noyes' recent higher education reporting, which she has done through a fellowship from the Education Writers Association, on VPR's Syllabus For Survival project page.
