One of the most common questions asked about college education is “how am I going to pay for it?” The sticker price of many college courses can come as a shock, however, there are a number of financial aid options available to students. To have the best chance of finding the financial aid program that works best for you, you need to be aware of the options and be properly prepared to apply. To help out, here are 5 things you should know when applying for financial aid.
Our Financial Aid Officers here at Northwest Career College understand that applying for financial aid can be a stressful situation and, they are on hand to provide as much information and assistance as possible. Call us today at (702) 403-1592 to discuss what financial aid options are available for you. Make sure to include Northwest’s School Code 038385 if you go online to fill out your FAFSA.
The first step in applying for financial aid is to have a good understanding of your own financial situation. Generating a clear understanding of your own finances and establishing realistic expectations is an essential part of applying for financial aid. Having a good knowledge of your financial details will also make the application process easier, should you choose to apply.
Before applying for financial aid it is important to understand the difference between merit-based and need-based aid and which type of aid you may be eligible for.
Need-based financial aid comes in three main forms, understanding the differences between these forms of aid can make it cleaner which type of aid is most suited to your particular situation.
The deadline for merit-based aid is dependant on the school or private institution that issues it, be sure to check with them so you are aware of their deadlines for application. For Federal financial aid, the FAFSA can be filled out as early as the 1st of January in the year you will be attending college.
