Chalk Talk: Three Tips for Getting More Financial Aid
The first step in the financial aid process is filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is used to determine your child’s financial aid eligibility, and is used by colleges and universities to build offers for aid. There are several tricks to ensuring that you get the most money you can when you file the FAFSA. First, file as early as possible. Some schools provide financial aid on a first come, first served basis, so a timely application is necessary. Second, be sure the document is filled out in its entirety. Unfortunately, each year, many students do not get the aid they need because something is omitted or isn’t filled out correctly on the FAFSA. Lastly, consider submitting a supplementary statement with your FAFSA in order to explain any special family circumstances. Although there are more than 100 questions on the FAFSA, there isn’t an opportunity to discuss medical bills, job loss, or other serious financial issues.
