The first step for nearly all students applying for financial aid is completing the FAFSA. FAFSA stands for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. It’s the federal government’s application for federal financial aid, and it is also used by state governments and many colleges and universities as they determine how much money to give you to help pay for college.
With college applications now complete (congratulations!), it’s time to apply for financial aid and scholarships.
When applying to college, here are three quick tips to remember:
If you're a senior in high school, you've probably just finished applying to colleges and are now taking a deep breath. While you likely feel relieved, you're also continually thinking about how you could have made your college application package stronger and wondering how you compare to your competition. DON'T. What's done is done and you can't change anything at this point.
Do you ever wonder whether you have what it takes to be admitted to an Ivy League University? That's a great question. But before answering it, it's important to have a clear sense of what the application requirements are at Ivy League schools.
