Chamber Joins Attorney General's Office in Announcing Financial Aid Education Campaign

On Wednesday, March 15th, Chamber President Jim Rooney joined Attorney General Maura Healey, State Treasurer Deb Goldberg, uAspire, and other members of the AG/Chamber Student Debt Working Group to announce a campaign aimed at educating students and their families on student financial aid award letters, and provide them with the resources they need to better understand the cost of their higher education options.

The Student Debt Working Group, established by the Attorney General's Office and the Chamber last year, has identified a lack of clarity and consistency in student financial aid award letters as a key contributing factor to the current student debt crisis.  The campaign, coinciding with when colleges and universities are mailing award letters to prospective students, is providing timely information and assistance to students and their parents to help them more clearly understand and compare their financial aid awards so they can make better informed financial decisions about their higher education options.
