A Financial Aid Checklist:

~~Learn about financial aid and create a plan early on.

~~Investigate every source of help.

~~Request college admission and financial aid information.

~~Know which applications to file and when.

~~Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

        All students must complete the Free Application For Federal Student Aid

          to apply for federal student aid programs.  For some colleges and states,

          this is the only form you will be asked to complete.

~~Complete the CSS Profile - **only for colleges that require it** -

        Check with the financial aid office of each college to which you are applying to

          see which forms are required. Complete this form only if your college asks for it.

For your Information:

Many colleges will ask you to fill out both the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Profile Registration to ensure maximum consideration for both federal and non-federal aid sources.

Some colleges and programs will also want you to complete their own application. Check with each institution and program to make sure you know exactly what forms to file.

Complete all applications accurately and legibly.

Mail admissions and aid applications before the deadlines.

Send FAFSA as soon as possible.

Respond promptly to requests for additional information.

Keep copies of all documents.

Research alternatives to financial aid. Use first class mail-special handling, such as registered mail to expedite your materials.
