Applying for Financial Aid
The First Step: Complete the FAFSA
NEXT, is to APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIPS! There is an ocean of scholarship opportunities out there for every field of study however, this does not mean you should put off applying for scholarships until the last minute. Different scholarships have various requirements to apply and can be extremely competitive. Understanding your cost of attendance (COA) is very important to know what you and your family are responsible for, or how much outside funding you need to find. Understanding how much money you will need to attend the college of your choice is very important. We will go further into your COA in the Affording College section of the student resources.
