Promoting financial literacy and education
Financial Preparation for College
Individual advisory sessions with professional advisors are available to assist with career profiling, career research, academic advising, college search, financial aid advising and financial preparation for college. Advisory fees are subsidized by AMEDF from 70% (for all families) to 100% (for families qualified for the school free lunch program). Advisors are professionals certified by AMEDF for college advisement and contracted to provide face to face guidance in select AMEDF chapter locations. Advisory is available as individual sessions or a package of 8 sessions (up to 4 hours of total advisory time). Participants’ co-pay for advisory fees is based on their subsidy level (i.e. At the 70% subsidy level, participants’ co-pay is $300 for the 8-session advisory package or $60 for an individual advisory session). In chapters where additional workshops are not fully subsidized, participants in the advisory package attend additional workshops free of charge.
