When do I start planning?

You can never start too early. The sooner you start looking for financial help the better.

For most financial aid programs you will need to:

  • Request for the application
  • Know the application deadline
  • Complete the forms thoroughly and correctly
  • Follow all the financial aid procedures
  • Send in the application before the set deadline

Missing a deadline could prevent you from getting some or all of the aid you are qualified for.

A school’s financial aid office can also be a great resource, so it's a good idea to talk to a financial aid counselor. If you have problems or unusual circumstances, the counselor can help you make financial aid plans.
