3 Reasons To Get Help During The Financial Aid Process

"The financial aid advisor/s at your school can help you with [the financial aid process], for no out-of-pocket expense," USA TODAY reports.

"...Why not take advantage of this excellent resource if you’re struggling with the process?

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that financial aid advisors may be strapped for time, as they have to serve many students, according to iGrad (iGrad.com) CEO Rob LeBreche. If that’s the case, you may want to use them in conjunction with other resources. ...

One excellent example of this is Federal Student Aid (studentaid.ed.gov), which is an office of the U.S. Department of Education. On its website, you can find information on federal loans, scholarships and grants, as well as directions how to navigate FAFSA, an estimation calculator, repayment options for student loans, and much more.

Another excellent free resources that can help you navigate financial aid is NASFAA (National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators), which goes through financial aid and tuition discounts by state and provides information about taxes in regards to financial aid."
