Because of the smaller classes and personal education, you might not think you can afford a private college education. You can. Last year, 100% of new, undergraduate students received financial aid. Those are good odds.
Completing the FAFSA is the first step to getting scholarships, grants, work-study and student loans. It only takes about 20-30 minutes, but it's totally worth it.
The earlier you complete the FAFSA, the better chance you have of maximizing your awards. If you're starting classes in the summer or fall, you need to complete the FAFSA ASAP.
Start by going to FAFSA.gov. Make sure you have these 4 things handy:
Create an FSA ID if you don't have one. Write it down because you'll use it next year to renew your FAFSA. If your parents plan to provide info, they'll need an FSA ID, too.
It usually takes about 20-30 minutes to complete and it's worth every minute. Let's get started.
