Apply for Aid
Who Should Apply for
For many students, financial aid can greatly affect their
decision about whether or not to attend college or which institution to attend.
Because of its importance, the decision to apply for financial aid, as well as
which financial aid programs to accept, should be made only with a complete
understanding of the process, requirements, benefits and responsibilities. The
only way to tell if you are eligible to receive aid is to apply for it. Many
factors are taken into account when awarding aid. Therefore, everyone who needs
financial assistance to attend college should apply. Financial aid is any loan,
part-time employment, grant or scholarship offered for the express purpose of
helping a student pay education-related expenses. Such aid is usually provided
by federal, state, institutional or private agencies. If you qualify, you may be
offered combinations of these types of aid, depending on your financial need and
the funds available.
