Financial Aid Basics

  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at FAFSA.gov. Apply as soon after January 1 as possible.
  • FAFSA Day is February 16, 2013. Go to CFNC.org to sign up.
  • Meet your school’s deadline. You have to apply for financial aid each year. You must maintain satisfactory academic progress in your program of study to continue to receive financial aid.
  • Sign your FAFSA electronically with your Personal Identification Number (PIN). Apply at PIN.ed.gov.
  • FAFSA asks about items that impact financial aid eligibility including:
    • Parent and student income (taxable and untaxed)
    • Parent and student assets
    • Number in family and number of family members in college
  • Result of FAFSA is the Expected Family Contribution (parent contribution plus student contribution).

Financial Aid Basics – Types of Aid

  • Gift Aid – grants and scholarships that do not have to be repaid
  • Self Help Aid – employment and loans that must be earned or repaid
  • Merit Aid – based on academics, special talent, etc.
  • Need-Based Aid – based on family financial circumstances

Institution’s Cost of Attendance includes tuition, fees, room, board, books and supplies, transportation, personal and miscellaneous expenses and loan fees.

Basic financial aid formula:

*Note that Expected Family Contribution remains the same, regardless of the college or university attended.

When looking at financial aid offers consider:

  • How much of the aid is grant and scholarship?
  • How much do we have to pay after subtracting grants and scholarships from the cost?
  • How will we cover that remaining cost? From our savings – or current income – or will we have to borrow against future earnings?
  • Are these grants and scholarships renewable and under what conditions?
  • Are there part-time employment opportunities on campus?
