Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following links would you NOT recommend to an employee asking for scholarship research sites?

    • A.

      Www.FinAid.org

    • B.

      Www.QVC.com

    • C.

      Www.Sholarships.com

    • D.

      Www.FastWeb.com

    • E.

      None of the above. They are all acceptable recommendations.

    Correct Answer
    B. Www.QVC.com
    Explanation
    QVC.com is not a suitable recommendation for an employee asking for scholarship research sites because QVC.com is a website for shopping and does not provide information or resources related to scholarships. The other three websites listed (FinAid.org, Scholarships.com, and FastWeb.com) are all legitimate scholarship research sites and would be appropriate recommendations for the employee.

Additionally, Need-Based Financial Aid can come from federal and state governments, as well as from colleges and universities themselves, making it a comprehensive and diverse source of financial support for students. It is not limited to incoming freshmen and can be awarded to students at any level of study.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which one of the following is NOT included in each Money Coaching response?

      Money-saving Tip

    • B.

      Caution

    • C.

      Personal anecdotes

    • D.

      Web site links

    C. Personal anecdotes
    Explanation

Money-saving tips, cautions, and web site links are all elements that may be included in a Money Coaching response, but personal anecdotes are not. Personal anecdotes are stories or experiences from the coach's own life, which may not always be relevant or helpful to the person seeking money coaching advice. Therefore, personal anecdotes are not included in each Money Coaching response.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of the following are myths when considering a college education? (check all that apply)

    • A.

      Attending a private college is unaffordable.

    • B.

      Owning a home makes it impossible to obtain financial aid.

    • C.

      Expect the university or school to fully disclose all costs, scholarships, and financing options.

    • D.

      Students will always get a higher-paying job if they attend a private college.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Attending a private college is unaffordable.
    B. Owning a home makes it impossible to obtain financial aid.
    C. Expect the university or school to fully disclose all costs, scholarships, and financing options.
    D. Students will always get a higher-paying job if they attend a private college.
    Explanation
    The correct answer choices are myths because they are not always true. Attending a private college can be affordable for some students, depending on financial aid and scholarships. Owning a home does not automatically disqualify someone from receiving financial aid, as it is based on income and other factors. While universities and schools should provide information on costs, scholarships, and financing options, it is not guaranteed that they will fully disclose everything. Lastly, attending a private college does not guarantee a higher-paying job, as job prospects and salaries depend on various factors such as field of study and individual skills.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following statements apply to 529 Plans? (check all that apply)

    • A.

      They are state-sponsored savings plans to be used for higher education.

    • B.

      Taxes on the earnings are deferred.

    • C.

      Withdrawals are exempt from federal taxation.

    • D.

      There are no contribution limits.

    • E.

      This is not a good planning resource for college education.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. They are state-sponsored savings plans to be used for higher education.
    B. Taxes on the earnings are deferred.
    C. Withdrawals are exempt from federal taxation.
    Explanation
    529 Plans are state-sponsored savings plans specifically designed for higher education expenses. Taxes on the earnings within these plans are deferred, meaning that individuals do not have to pay taxes on the investment gains until they make withdrawals. Additionally, withdrawals from 529 Plans are exempt from federal taxation, making them a tax-efficient way to save for education expenses. However, there are contribution limits to these plans, so it is important to consider other resources for college planning as well.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of the following are indications an online degree program might be a scam? (check all that apply)

    • A.

      There is no accreditation.

    • B.

      Address and phone number are not listed or available.

    • C.

      Assignment submissions and tests are not required.

    • D.

      With a fee, a degree is granted based on previous life and work experience only.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. There is no accreditation.
    B. Address and phone number are not listed or available.
    C. Assignment submissions and tests are not required.
    D. With a fee, a degree is granted based on previous life and work experience only.
    Explanation
    An online degree program might be a scam if there is no accreditation, as this indicates that the program has not met the necessary standards for quality education. Additionally, if the address and phone number are not listed or available, it suggests that the program may not have a physical presence or a legitimate contact point. Furthermore, if assignment submissions and tests are not required, it raises concerns about the program's rigor and the validity of the degree. Lastly, if a degree is granted solely based on previous life and work experience for a fee, it suggests that the program is not focused on academic achievement but rather on selling credentials.

      3
