Although a Financial Aid officer cannot legally complete the FAFSA for you, they are more than willing to help with any questions you may have.
Find out your award eligibility: After your FAFSA is submitted, you will receive an e-mail notifying you of your award amount. At this point in the process you are not committed to accept the entire award amount. The financial aid office can help you understand the types of awards before you accept them.
Determine your Financial Commitment: Before committing to an award, take into consideration the cost of the program, time commitment, and whether you will work while in school or not. All of these factors can help determine your educational expenses. Set an appointment with your Financial Aid Office so they can help you to calculate the cost of program and your personal budget for college.
Evaluate Loans: Before accepting the loans determine whether or not your financial commitment to college requires a loan. If you need further clarification on the loans contact the financial Aid office and they can help you to evaluate the benefits of the loan.
