College Planning

Being prepared for college is extremely important. While most students and parents focus on the big decisions – choosing a school, roommate, major – there are also financial considerations to take into account.

Even if you don’t expect to get financial aid, filling out a FAFSA is still important. It puts your family in the position of becoming eligible for any version of federal student aid, which includes low-cost loans (Stafford unsubsidized and subsidized loans), grants, and work-study. The FAFSA may also determine your eligibility for state and school aid as well.
