Special student populations, with their unique needs and expectations, make up a growing percentage of students on most college and university campuses today. Special populations often have little or no family support or guidance, and, in some cases, their attendance is challenged by a lack of knowledge of special funding resources available to help offset college and living costs. One of the most important goals for educators and administrators is to equip all students with the life skills, knowledge, abilities, and confidence necessary to succeed within and outside the classroom. Throughout the college experience, special student populations frequently turn to advisors, faculty, and staff members for advice and guidance, especially when facing financial challenges. Is your campus informed and ready to help?

Participants will leave this webinar with a greater understanding of the college funding resources that are available and the information necessary to create an action plan that will facilitate the financial success of students within special populations on their respective campuses.
