“Tina worked closely with my daughter, husband and me through my daughter’s entire senior year. I strongly believe that is the reason she got accepted into every college she applied to. She helps with the FAFSA and the whole financial aid process.”
— Maeve Brown, Colorado
“The Financial Aid Academy not only helped us understand the overwhelming financial aid process, but also got our daughter an extra $5,000 a year in financial aid for all four years! We learned how to write a financial aid appeal letter in the Academy, which is how she got awarded the extra aid. Not only that, but Tina provides scholarship resources every month so that we don’t have to search for them. I highly recommend the FAFSA Guru Financial Aid Academy. You can’t beat the price!“

“I do not know what we would have done without all of Tina’s knowledge. She helped us save thousands of dollars and made sure we were on track the whole year.“
— Tina M., California
Sending a quick thank you for all your expert advice on financial aid appeals! I’ve been taking your online class (Financial Aid Academy) since August 2020 and I’m so glad I did! My friend referred me to you and it paid off!
“I wrote two appeal letters for my son (only to the schools that were the most expensive). The first one was unable to offer any more than what they had initially offered. But the second one, (which is the school he accepted admittance to and wanted to attend), just got back to us yesterday and offered $8,000 more!! We are thrilled.
We feel like this is only the beginning, because we haven’t even heard back on any scholarships that he applied for yet.
I could NOT have done this on my own. Thank you for sharing your wisdom. :=)
This has been an extremely worthwhile investment and so grateful for your help! Justyn committed to Boston College, received a large financial package, and I was approved for the parent plus loan.
Your guidance and tips were invaluable. Thank you again!!
First and foremost we have watched numerous videos full of information that you have shared!
If it wasn’t for you we would not have know to request an appeal to a financial aid letter.
With that tip and tackling it strategically resulted in an extra $18k a year of Aid. Thank You!
We guided our daughter in the scholarship search and encouraged (sometimes nagged 😉) for her to apply apply apply….just this week she has been awarded 3 totaling $5K and we suspect that additional are coming as well soon – with an insider heads up from her guidance counselor (our daughter is not aware though.)

Hi Tina. With your help we have appealed the offers of 9 schools. To date, we have heard from 7 of them and have received significant additional grants or scholarships from 6. Thanks!
We learned about you last year as we were preparing our son for transferring from junior college to four year university. You did a private zoom with us on appeal for the 2021/2022 year for Texas Christian University.
That help made a huge difference! We have a 529 for our son and he was offered a very generous scholarship but still a huge gap financially to attend Texas Christian University his first choice college. Through the appeal letter you assisted us with they met the difference and with his 529 he now has a full tuition coverage with the option for a semester abroad study. We can’t thank you enough for your tips he is loving his campus and it makes our hearts full.
We are using your tips again for our daughter for the 2022/2023 college year and hoping we can achieve excellent results again.
I have recommended you to families of her senior class who are stressing as they start the college process.

I am very thankful that I found you on YouTube last weekend! I think it was a “God-send” for us honestly. I joined your Acadamy PRO program the next day (last weekend). I know I’m a little late to the party – but I have gone thru all of August/September content and made excellent notes. I will start on October this week and move along with you…
I must say your program is excellent! I am so impressed with both you and the overall content. This is all “greek” to us … and you are already making it so much easier. I feel so much better having a trusted translator to guide us through! Thank you in advance as I know your program will make a huge difference for us going forward.
I am very much looking forward to working with you Mrs. Steele. I will follow the program and be in touch as needed. One question … are there certain stages or times of year in the process that you recommend for us to have our 2 consult sessions? When & where they may be most useful/valuable for us?

Fifty-minute phone call with Tina Steele today, worth every penny. Helped me complete a complicate family FAFSA situation, CSS Profile set up, etc. Very knowledgeable, clear, direct, professional, recognizes the challenges and open to share tips on additional subjects. Highly recommended for insight, peace of mind, and any such troubles.

We just heard from Chapman and in response to the appeal letter they awarded her an additional $5,850! Thanks so much for all your help with that!
How about over 80k saved over 4 years by my twins because I bought your course last fall. Unbelievable. Best investments I ever made. Thank you The FAFSA Guru ! If anyone doesn’t believe me they can message me. If your reading this, buy the course! You honestly can’t afford not to. The FAFSA process is complicated but Tina will make it easy for you. And the appeal letters work!
I enrolled and completed your Financial Aid Appeal course. The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University awarded me an additional $47,992 after reviewing my appeal! The school replaced its initial $20,000 scholarship with a $67,992 one! Thank you so much!
