Episode 34: How To Pay For College Without Going Broke

The earlier release of the FAFSA (Free Application For Federal Student Aid) this year has brought on a lot of confusion and stress. We’re here to help. This week’s guest, Kelly Peeler, CEO and founder of NextGenVest (a company that hooks incoming students up with money mentors) breaks down the process of applying for aid, choosing a college and even the question of whether you can “negotiate” (colleges hate that word) for more money from a school you really want to attend. (Plus, she’s got a special code for HerMoney listeners to get three months of NextGenVest for free!) We suggest the best credit cards out there for college students and how to pinpoint your passion when you’re just not sure what it is.
