Financial Aid Quick Guide
What is federal student aid? It’s money from the government that helps you pay for college, career school or graduate school expenses. It is available through grants and scholarships (which typically don’t have to be repaid) and work-study funds and loans (which typically have to be earned or paid back).
The single easiest step you can take to be eligible for free financial aid is to fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
