Federal Aid Resources
The Federal Student Aid provides calculators as tools to assist students and/or parents to estimate information related to the calculation of the student's eligibility for financial assistance, the repayment of loans, or other issues related to educational cost.
Federal Government/Department of Education Federal Aid:
- College.gov: This innovative new resource was designed by students for students and features first-person accounts of students who overcame challenges of going to college such as peer pressure, lack of family support, and financial barriers. Find out about why to go, how to go, and how to pay for college or other post-secondary education programs. Young people who may not have considered higher education a viable option will be engaged, informed, and inspired to create their own "roadmap" to college.
