COLLEGE CASH: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Want a great education without the financial burden? Welcome to the club! Here’s what you need to know:

THE DEADLINES:

Many scholarship deadlines are approaching, like February 1 for some, now is the time to start searching for scholarships and gathering needed information.

WHEN IT’S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE:

If an organization promises you money for no work, or asks you to pay a fee, just walk away.
Focus on awards that come directly from reputable colleges, companies, organizations and charities.

THE REAL COST:

Federally-funded schools are required to post a Net Price Calculator (NPC) on their website. Use it to calculate:

  • Your Expected Family Contribution(EFC)
  • Average financial aid awarded to students like you
  • The school’s “net price” – total cost of attendance minus aid (This is the amount you’ll need to come with for your freshman year through cash, loans and scholarships/grants.)

Scholarship Match on Naviance is the best way to find scholarship based on your specific profile.
You can also check for scholarships on the Scholarship List.
