Paying for College
Finding the dollars to take the next step in your education and towards your future can be expensive. Where do you find the money?
Here are resources to use in your search for financing your education:
- www.fafsa.gov - Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
This determines eligibility for Pell Grant, other federal and state grants, federal student and parent loans, and federal work study. Check with the school you will attend for the specifics on their federal financial aid programs.
- www.fastweb.com - A great site to apply for scholarships and general financial aid information.
- www.mapping-your-future.org - A great site for planning a career, selecting a school and resources for paying for your education.
Many colleges have transfer scholarships. Be sure to utilize the website information provided by your transfer college. Use this information to reasearch departmental/major scholarships. Make a friend in the financial aid or scholarship office - call when you need help.
Remember, WUE can be a transfer scholarship, so don't forget to check in to that option.
