If you’re trying to pay for college you realize that a college education isn’t cheap. The
price tag for a top private school can exceed $32,000 per year just for tuition. That
does not include the cost of books, transportation, food and personal expenses. This
can seem like an overwhelming financial burden. There are ways to help pay for a
college education using Financial Aid and Scholarships.

The federal government's approach to financial aid is focused on increasing access to
postsecondary education. The primary objective is providing financial help to students
who otherwise could not afford to pay for a college education. Most financial aid is
need based rather than merit based. In general, financial aid for higher education is
available in three forms:

-
Student Loans; which must be repaid
-
Grants and Scholarships; which do not have to be repaid
- Education
Plus Loans for parents; which must be repaid
- Work-Study Programs; which place students in paying jobs on campus

All students interested in receiving financial aid for college will need to complete the
FAFSA form – which stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Applying
early is highly recommended as most schools award their limited funds on a first-come,
first-served basis.  
Tip: Start your college search early!

The internet has made it easier to find money available to help pay for a college
education – start your research early and use as many
resources as possible.
