You May Qualify for More than You Think

The amount and type of aid isn't always based solely on financial need. Once you apply for aid, you may be surprised by the amount of aid you receive. As you proceed:

  • Don't assume you are not eligible.
  • Look at all your options.
  • Investing a little time now could really pay off.
