Applying for Financial Aid??

Applying for Financial Aid??
« on: March 17, 2008, 07:04:23 PM »
I've got a question about the process of applying for financial aid with several of the schools I applied to.  I realize it's a little late in the financial aid application cycle, but I got my dates a little mixed up and am frantically trying to get my paperwork taken care of.

Most of the schools have their own financial aid application that they require.  As well, some mention that the FAFSA is necessary as well, but others don't mention it in their requirements.  My question is, in order to apply for financial aid, do I just need to fill out the school's application as well as the FAFSA??  I never had to use financial aid for my undergrad, so I'm a little confused about the overall process. 

Any help would be appreciated!!

FAFSA + Need Access + School's Application. You will definitely need FAFSA, probably Need Access, probably school app. Every school should list exactly what they need. And if you don't understand, call! They are there to help you.

Should you apply for financial aid even if you aren't sure you'll be attending?
