Financial Aid

Many students and parents don’t realize the advantage of applying for financial aid. Maybe the paperwork seems too daunting, or you’ve applied in the past and didn’t qualify. Either way, the number one suggestion here is to apply. You have nothing to lose other than the time it takes to fill out the application.

To break it down, you’ll need to submit the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The Financial Aid office at your child’s school can guide you through this process if you aren’t sure where to begin. That’s their job, and they are there to help. Or, if you don’t have time for that, reach out. We’d be glad to help!

It’s important to verify that financial aid will apply to the program your child is considering. This is often a factor in choosing a program, so begin researching early and specifically ask this question if might be a deal breaker.

Keys to success:

  1. Apply for FAFSA.
  2. Choose a program that allows financial aid to apply.
  3. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
