Financial Aid

Student financial aid refers to funding intended to help students pay educational expenses. This includes tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and so on for education at a college, university, or private school. The federal government provides need-based federal aid called Federal Student Financial Aid, which is composed of different programs, grants, and scholarships, work and loan programs.

To qualify for federal student aid, a student must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This FAFSA uses a calculation taking into consideration,income and assets, to determine a student's Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Colleges use the this information to decide what types of financial aid a student is eligible to receive. Students must complete the FAFSA each year to be considered for financial aid.

General governmental funding for public education is not called financial aid, which refers to awards to specific individual students. A scholarship is sometimes used as a synonym for a financial aid award, although grants and student loans are also components of financial aid packages from students' intended colleges.Institutions may also offer their own student financial assistance, in the form of need- or merit-based aid, as well as endowed scholarships. Some schools may only require the FAFSA.
