Financial Aid Myths
"My parents make too much money so I won't qualify for aid."
There is no income cut-off to qualify for federal student aid. Many factors besides income are taken into account. In addition, some schools won't even consider you for merit-based scholarships until you have submitted the FAFSA. Don't assume... fill out the FAFSA and find out.
"Only students with good grades get aid."
Most federal aid programs do not take grades into account. Provided you maintain satisfactory academic progress in college, you'll continue to receive aid.
"The FAFSA is too hard to fill out."
The FAFSA is easier than ever. There are instructions for every question, and if you need help you can ask representatives via online chat. Most students complete the FAFSA in just 23 minutes!
