How do I research college financial aid policies?

Hi guys! I'm starting to look into college financial aid policies, but I'm not sure where to find accurate and up-to-date information. What resources would you recommend for researching financial aid at different colleges? Thank you for your help!

Hey there! It's great that you're being proactive about researching college financial aid policies. When my child was applying to colleges, I found a few resources to be particularly helpful. First, I would recommend visiting each college's official website and navigating to their financial aid page. Most colleges have comprehensive information about their financial aid policies, types of aid available, and deadlines for submitting applications. Additionally, the College Board's website (collegeboard.org) has a useful tool called the 'College Search' where you can look up specific colleges and get details about their financial aid policies. Another resource is the U.S. Department of Education's College Navigator (nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator), which provides information on grants, loans, and scholarships for each school. Lastly, don't hesitate to reach out to the colleges' financial aid offices directly with any questions or concerns. They are usually more than willing to help prospective students navigate the process. Best of luck with your research!
