Financial Aid Step by Step
Step 1: Let's Go Over the Basics
It is money to help you pay for college
It may come in the form of a gift or in the form of self-help
Most people get it because they need it, though some get it solely because of merit.
The federal government funds most of it, but states, colleges and outside sources also help.
Step 2: Estimate How Financial Aid Will Work for You
Your family will be required to pay an expected family contribution.
The costs of the college you attend minus the financial aid you receive equals what you pay.
College savings will not be held against you.
Step 3: Choosing Colleges, Thinking Costs
Each school has different costs and financial aid policies.
When choosing colleges to apply to, consider a "financial safety."
Your costs might vary from the published averages.
You might be able to save money at a public college or community college.
Research the colleges you're considering and contact their financial aid offices early.
File on time - filing late can cost you money.
File your FAFSA online.
Make a timeline to keep track of your deadlines, including college priority dates.
Gather together the records you need to fill out the forms.
They're usually short.
Their questions vary from school to school and from state to state.
They may determine if you're special for special grants.
They may help verify your financial info.
If state aid is available, apply for it.
If one of your colleges requires an institutional applications, fill it out.
