Financial Aid Specialist in the Secondary School.

An increasingly important function of high school counselors is advising students about financing their postsecondary education. With substantial increases in the amount of student financial aid funds available from the federal government, state aid programs, and local and other sources, the counselor's role has been significantly affected. This paper outlines several programs instituted at one high school in an effort to disseminate financial aid information to students. These programs include: (1) an early fall assembly for the entire senior class during which the financial aid counselor offers information on financial opportunities and the processes of seeking financial aid; (2) a college night during which a special session on financial aid procedures is conducted; (3) a financial aid workshop in which parents are assisted in the completion of the Parents' Confidential Statement; and (4) the distribution of a 60-page handbook detailing scholarship and loan programs to students seeking a variety of postsecondary options.
