  • Financial Aid FAQs

    • I probably don't qualify for aid. Should I apply for aid anyway?

      Yes. Many families mistakenly think they don't qualify for aid and avoid themselves from receiving financial aid by failing to apply for it. Moreover, there are a few sources of aid such as unsubsidized Stafford and PLUS loans that are available regardless of need. The FAFSA form is free. There is no good excuse for not applying.

    • Do I need to be admitted before I can apply for financial aid at a particular university?

      No. You can apply for financial aid any time after January 1. To actually receive funds, however, you must be admitted and enrolled at the university.

    • Do I have to reapply for financial aid every year?

      Yes. Most financial aid offices require that you apply for financial aid every year. If your financial circumstances change, you may get more or less aid. After your first year you will receive a "Renewal Application" which contains preprinted information from the previous year's FAFSA. Note that your eligibility for financial aid may change significantly, especially if you have a different number of family members in college. Renewal of your financial aid package also depends on your satisfactory academic progress towards a degree, such as earning a minimum number of credits and achieving a minimum GPA.

    • Are my parents responsible for my educational loans?

      No. Parents are, however, responsible for the Federal PLUS loans. Parents will only be responsible for your educational loans if they co-sign your loan. In short, only you alone are responsible for repaying your educational loans.
