With the total costs of many private colleges now exceeding $40,000 to $75,000 per year, financial aid is a topic on the minds of an increasing number of people. Perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind regarding financial aid is this: You will not know whether or not you qualify for assistance, and you will not receive any aid, if you do not apply. It is not uncommon for more than half of the students at some very well known schools to be receiving some type of financial assistance (grants, scholarships, loans or work-study).
How to Apply for the FAFSA:
Every school will require that you submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be considered for aid. The FAFSA is currently available. Many schools will also ask you to complete the CSS Profile, https://cssprofile.collegeboard.org/, a second form, available in the early fall, with which you must send a processing fee. Both forms are submitted to processors who then calculate your expected family contribution and forward that information to you and to any schools you have indicated on the application. The FAFSA calculations are based on federally legislated methodology. The CSS Profile calculations take additional discretionary information into account, as requested by the various schools to which you are applying. A step by step walk through the financial aid process is available at MEFA, the Massachusetts Educational Financing Association.
