Chalk Talk: Financial Aid
Paying for college is becoming increasingly difficult with skyrocketing costs. The cost of tuition isn’t even the real cost, many times, as there are often as many as another $10,000 worth of fees and costs. For many students this is prohibitive, and they must limit themselves to state schools and community colleges. But don’t despair! Most private colleges offer financial aid, and a competitive student can often receive enough aid to make the cost of attending a private college equivalent to attending a public one. Many of the more expensive colleges offer a large percentage of students a small aid award across the board, maybe a few thousand dollars. Competitive students often are eligible for merit scholarships, which can be substantial. These are often awarded by the colleges without the student having to apply for them, but always check the college’s website and even contact their financial aid department to make sure. Similarly, there may be other awards and scholarships depending on the background of the student. The starting place for financial aid is really the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
