Financial Aid

All students interested in financial aid need to process http://www.testprep.com2 forms: some need to process a third form. All students applying for financial aid need to process a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and usually the individual college’s application for financial aid. Your parents will need to apply on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov after Jan 1.

Students applying to some private colleges need to complete the Profile, also online. The Profile should be completed in the fall of senior year. Most admissions pages on the college website will have information for financial aid for that particular school.

It is advisable to review each college’s financial aid requirements. All of these forms are handled entirely by you and your parents rather than by the guidance office. Questions regarding financial aid may be directed to the financial aid office of the college to which you are applying. A financial aid meeting for the parents of UA sophomores and juniors will take place in April of the current school year.
