As one college finance expert says, figuring out how to pay for college doesn’t have to be rocket science. But for many families, it can feel that way. A set of videos have been released to help Minnesota families better understand their options. The videos include ones focusing on families considering private nonprofit colleges, families where parents have not completed college degrees and separate ones in Hmong, Somali and Spanish.
The videos were developed jointly by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education and the Minnesota Private College Fund, working with TPT’s Minnesota Productions & Partnerships. One of videos is airing as a program on public television stations statewide. The importance of student aid that comes from federal and state government is highlighted in the videos, as is aid that institutions provide.
Consider passing these resources on to parents of middle school and high school students who may be interested.
