6 FINANCIAL AID MYTHS
MYTH 1: My parents make too much money, so I won't qualify for any aid.
FACT: The reality is there's no income cut-off to qualify for federal student aid.
MYTH 2: I support myself, so I don't have to include my parent's info on the FAFSA form.
FACT: Even if you support yourself, live on your own, or file your own taxes, you may still be considered a dependent student for FAFSA purposes.
MYTH 3: I should wait until I'm accepted to a college before I fill out the FAFSA form.
FACT: Don't wait. You can start now! As a matter of fact, you can start as early as your senior year in high school.
MYTH 4: If I didn't receive enough money for school, I'm just out of luck.
FACT: You still have options, like scholarships! Check out the Outside Scholarship link to the left.
MYTH 5: There's only one FAFSA deadline and that's not til June.
FACT: Nope! There are least three deadlines you need to check: your state, school, and federal deadlines.
MYTH 6: I only have to fill our the FAFSA once.
FACT: You have to fill out the FAFSA form every year you are in school in order to stay eligible for federal financial aid.
