  • The first thing to do is break it down into the different types of loans, grants, and scholarships.

  • Most people will need to fill out the FAFSA and other college financial aid forms (Profile) even if you don't think you will qualify.

  • Many colleges award scholarships and merit aid only to those that fill out the financial forms regardless of income.

  • It's never too early to look at scholarships and learn money-saving tips.
