Webinar: Tips for Helping Students Avoid “Summer & Verification Melt” – Tuesday, May 17, 2022 | 1–2 p.m. (CT)


After college acceptance, students may face many barriers – including housing applications, housing and admission deposits, financial aid applications and processes, and others – that can lead to summer melt. Among those is verification melt – when students fail to complete the verification process and as a result do not receive a Pell Grant and other federal student aid. Register for this session, where we will discuss the impacts of both verification and summer melt and resources to help students persist through these.

Learn how you can help students navigate the next steps after they have been accepted into college and the barriers they may face throughout the process.

The webinar is open to school counselors, college and career staff, college-access professionals, and anyone who provides direct support to students in the college and financial aid process. To learn more and register, visit here!
