by My college Corner My College Corner provides webinars

When it comes to paying for college, most students need all the financial help they can get. If you’re one of those, here are a few tips you can use to get started with the different types of financial aid that are out there.

Deadlines

All student loan applications have deadlines that must always be met. So, it’s important for you to keep yourself plugged-in on the dates.

Family contributions

Based on the information provided in the FAFSA, the amount your family can contribute basically means how much money the parents can add to help offset the expenses of college.

Total costs of college

Don’t make the mistake of not figuring out how much money you need in advance. Bear in mind that you don’t have to only pay for the tuition, but also textbooks, supplies, and anything else you might need on top of the tuition.

Types of financial aid

There are many different types of financial aid for students, namely federal student loans, private student loans, scholarships, and grants. It’s important for you to keep up with each of these and know which ones you can qualify for.

Appealing the award

If you were denied any type of financial aid or were offered less than what you were expecting, you can consider financial aid appeal.

Remember that this is only scratching the surface of the different options you might have. Whatever happens, don’t get put off and keep trying.
