I have a financial aid issue?
Question by Erik: I have a financial aid issue?
hi i have an issue with financial aid.
i start college THIS JANUARY!! and i have yet to applied for financial aid because i fear that i wont recieve any aid at all, and they will only try to convince me to get student loans and i do not want that.
my father makes roughly 150,000 to 200,000 a year and he recieves almost 40 thousand in his taxes my mom and father file together, well i’d like to know if theres anyway i can recieve financial aid to attend community college? and the financial aid that you dont have to pay back my friend only lives with her mother and she recieves financial aid But she also gets a check for almost 3,000 dollars from financial aid! to spend it on whatever she wants, how can i get this sort of aid?
someone please explain this process to me
Answer by Tom
The great majority of college financial aid is awarded based on need. You can get it if you are determined to have financial need, based on your responses on the FAFSA form. Don’t expect to get aid by sitting in your room wishing you’d get some. You will HAVE to apply for aid or you will get nothing.
