Although there are lots of differences between adults returning to college and traditional students, as far as financial aid is concerned, the steps are pretty much the same.
Whether it's your first time applying for financial aid and you need to know how to get started, or it's just one more thing on your to-do list, we're here to help you find your way! Believe it or not, getting money for college is not as confusing or complicated as you might think.
The financial aid process is a little bit different for each student, but there are a few things that hold true for just about everyone. First, apply even if you think you won't qualify. There are many variables involved in determining eligibility and there's just no way to know for sure if you don't try. Second, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) determines eligibility for Federal Student Aid programs as well as eligibility for many private grants, state aid and scholarship programs. Filing the FAFSA is essential even if you don't think you will qualify for federal aid.
