Making Sense of Financial Aid Offers

helpful-college-hints-tips

On July 24, 2012, the Obama administration debuted a standardized form for colleges to use to inform accepted applicants of their college costs and financial aid awards.

Not only is the form designed to be easier to understand, but also a standardized form allows families to put different college offers side-by-side to more clearly see what compared costs and financial aid packages really are.

All parents and applicants should compare college offers to see what is the best fit and what is the most affordable education they can get. This form makes shopping much more “buyer-friendly.” Check out the form at FastWeb.
