From the federal government to your local grocery store--once you start looking, you might be surprised by all of the financial help you can get for school. Take advantage of the opportunities available to you and see how much financial aid you could get for college. Did you know:

  • A school advisor can help you with the entire process
  • 79.5% of college students rely on financial aid [1]
  • One application will qualify you for grants, loans and more

Financial Aid Options

Grants: Basically free money! Most grants are federally funded and are awarded based on your financial need and grade point average.

Scholarships: Awarded based on your academic performance, talents, ethnicity or other factors. Qualifications are too varied to list. For this reason, you must apply for scholarships individually. There are thousands of organizations and individuals that offer scholarships. Be sure to check out which scholarships you qualify for.

Loans: This type of financial assistance must be repaid. There are two types of loans, government and private. Government loans tend to carry lower interest rates than most private loans. Depending on your financial need, the government could pay the interest for you while you're enrolled in school. Government loans are highly recommended to students.

Take the Next Step

Once you've found a few schools you’re interested in, you can start applying for financial aid. The application process is simple! All you need to do is fill out a FREE Federal Student Aid Application (FAFSA) through the US Department of Education.

One application will qualify you for grants, school-specific aid, Stafford Loans, PLUS Loans (parent loans) and more! The FAFSA form is used by virtually all two and four-year colleges and career schools for awarding aid.

You should know that the official FAFSA site is found at ".gov" not “.com”-- there are several ".com" sites out there asking you to pay for this FREE form. Don't get scammed: You don't have to pay to fill out the FASFA and you don't have to pay to qualify for scholarships!

How Much Money Will You Get?

Awards are based on a variety of factors and students are encouraged to keep applying every semester. The slightest change in income or family circumstances could drastically affect the amount of aid you qualify for. Keep applying!
