STEPS 1-2-3 TO FINANCE YOUR COLLEGE EDUCATION

STEP 1:  SAVE MONEY $$$$  One of the first steps to financing your college education is saving money.  Click on the link to find out how:Saving for College

STEP 2:  RESEARCH $$$  It is never too early to start researching scholarship information.  Students are encouraged to compile a list of scholarships from both the universities they plan to attend and from other external sources.  When reviewing university scholarships visit their website for a listing of scholarship and financial aid resources available (also research within the departments you are pursuing (i.e. engineering, music, art, etc), alumni (campus and local chapters).  Organize yourself by creating an excel sheet that list the following information:

- Name of Scholarship

- Website address/address to request scholarship application

- Deadlines (priority, hard deadline, postmark deadline)

- Requirements (essay(s), SAT/ACT scores, grade level, letter of recommendation, etc.)

 

STEP 3:  FAFSA (F-R-E-E Application for Federal Student Aid at www.fafsa.gov)  Follow these Cafe College tips

Completing the F-R-E-E Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA - www.fafsa.gov ) is the first step in the financial aid process. You must fill out the FAFSA to apply for federal student financial aid, such as the Pell Grant, student loans, and college work-study. New York State and most colleges use your FAFSA to make their financial aid awards as well.

The sooner you fill out your FAFSA, the better.  Many types of financial aid are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, so it’s to your advantage to file as early as possible.  Check with your college and file in time to meet the earliest deadline. It’s important to meet all deadlines!

5.    Financial Aid Scams: How Not to Get Scammed On Your Way To College

Apply for Financial Aid Every Year!

Remember, you need to complete the FAFSA not just once, but every year you plan to attend school.  If you filled out a FAFSA the year before, you can probably use the shorter Renewal FAFSA.

Scholarship Scams - A good rule of thumb: If you have to pay money in order to qualify for a “scholarship program ” or a “scholarship service,” it is almost certainly a scam. Visit the Scholarship Scams page to learn more.
