Don't know the difference between a Pell Grant and a scholarship? Not sure what FAFSA stands for or why it's even important? Don't worry, we're here to help you understand the world of student financial aid and help you navigate the application process.
The majority of four-year degree-seeking undergraduate students receive some type of financial aid to help them pay for college. Some of this aid is money students won't have to pay back (like scholarships and grants), while other types of aid (like student loans) they will.
Applying to college and filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form early, provides the best opportunity for students to be eligible for the greatest amount of aid.
