FINANCIAL AID FAST FACTS

…what you need to know about college costs…

Fact #1:  Like most things in life, college is not free.  You and your family may help offset college expenses by applying for financial aid and scholarships. 

Fact # 2:  In order to be considered for federal or state need-based aid, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  You must also submit any additional forms promptly.

Fact #3:  In addition to tuition, other expenses are to be expected when planning to pay for college.  These include – additional required fees, books, supplies, transportation, room and board, and personal expenses.  An estimate of these fees makes up your “Cost of Attendance.”

Fact #4 Financial Aid is awarded based on the difference between the cost of attendance (as established by the college) and your expected family contribution (EFC) as determined by your FAFSA results.

Fact #5:  Your FAFSA results must be received by the financial aid office before August 1st to ensure that financial aid will be available for the Fall Semester fee payment.
