Key resorces inclde yor high school conselor and the financial aid and admissions staff at colleges that interest yo. More information is available online on sites sch as the College Planning section of and from books and pblications in yor high school library or the pblic library. Throghot this gide, we se college in a generic sense to cover many different postsecondary edcation options, inclding for-year and two-year colleges and niversities, career schools, vocational/technical programs and distance edcation. This pblication was developed by USA Fnds, a nonprofit corporation that spports access to edcation. USA Fnds is committed to helping deserving stdents realize their dreams of higher edcation and a brighter ftre. Here s to yor bright ftre!

2 The compelling case for college College reqires a significant investment of yor time and money. In retrn, most stdents reap significant rewards that grow throghot their lifetime. For example, college gradates have the potential for significantly higher annal and lifetime earnings than high school gradates do. Consider the charts below. People who gradate from college earn significantly more money than those who have only a high school diploma. Those with a college degree also are less likely to be nemployed than those withot one. College gradates tend to have a broader and better selection of job opportnities than do high school gradates. Broader employment options contribte to increased job satisfaction and pward mobility for college grads. In addition to the financial rewards, a college degree can enhance yor qality of life. According to a stdy abot the vale of going to college, condcted by the Institte for Higher Edcation Policy, when compared with high school gradates, college gradates: Have higher self-esteem and more self-direction. Enjoy better health. Rate themselves as happier and more satisfied with life. As yo weigh the cost of prsing a higher edcation, keep in mind that the retrn on yor investment will be sbstantial. College may not be a good investment for stdents who drop ot before completing their stdies, however. These stdents typically incr greater costs than benefits from a higher edcation. College is a serios commitment, and yo shold plan accordingly. Who s getting paid more?

3 Selecting a college Higher edcation options One of the great strengths of American postsecondary edcation is the broad diversity of higher edcation programs. There are options for higher learning to meet the needs, and pocketbooks, of nearly every stdent and family. Among the choices are the following: For-year state or private colleges and niversities. These instittions offer bachelor s degree (for-year) programs, and many also offer advanced degrees, inclding master s, doctoral and professional degree programs, sch as medicine and law. State colleges and niversities receive direct financial spport from state government. These sbsidies help offset some tition costs and other expenses. State instittions typically offer the broadest range of academic programs. Althogh private or independent colleges and niversities do not receive direct financial spport from state government, many have endowments that permit them to offer more generos financial aid to help offset higher tition costs. Private colleges may offer smaller class sizes and closer contact with faclty than a large state niversity offers. Commnity colleges. These colleges typically offer associate degree (two-year) programs. The cost of attendance is generally mch lower than the cost at for-year instittions. In addition, admission reqirements typically are not as stringent for commnity colleges as for many for-year colleges and niversities. As a reslt, some stdents spend their first two years at a commnity college and later transfer to a for-year instittion. Commnity colleges also offer contining edcation programs, as well as technical training programs in cooperation with local bsinesses. Career, vocational and technical schools. Schools in this category are distingished by a focs on specific degree, certificate or training programs. Examples inclde schools that specialize in compter programming, bsiness administration, graphic design and cosmetology. Distance edcation. Many postsecondary instittions offer corses that are delivered in whole or in part online, throgh videoconferencing or correspondence. Stdents learn at their own pace and according to their own schedle. Factors to consider in selecting a college The cost of yor edcation is an important factor to consider in selecting the higher edcation program that meets yor needs. There are several isses that can affect the cost of yor higher edcation. In-state and ot-of-state tition. Typically, private colleges and niversities charge everyone the same tition and fees, bt most pblic colleges and niversities have one cost for residents of the state and a higher cost for stdents from otside the state. Pblished price and net price. Pblished college costs do not accrately represent what most stdents actally pay. Approximately two-thirds of ndergradate stdents enrolled fll time receive grants, scholarships, work-stdy employment, tax credits and tax dedctions that redce their actal cost of college. Financial aid makes a difference. Financial aid helps stdents and families pay for edcation expenses. Yo may receive a combination of grants, scholarships, work-stdy employment, or loans to help pay for college. Don t rle ot a school based solely on the cost of attendance. Yo won t know if a school is affordable ntil yo receive yor financial aid award letter or notification. 3

4 The following is a list of factors other than cost that yo shold consider in selecting a college. Size. Colleges range in size from tens to tens of thosands of stdents. Typically, a smaller college offers smaller classes and the opportnity for greater interaction with faclty. Faclty members at smaller colleges may be focsed on teaching more than research. Larger colleges generally offer broader academic choices and activities. Althogh large lectres are more common at larger colleges, these lectres may be led by faclty members who are leading athorities in their field. Academic program. Find ot whether the college offers a strong program in yor fields of interest. If yo haven t yet determined yor major field of stdy, consider the strength of the college s general liberal arts and sciences program. If yo have a strong interest in a particlar career field, make sre that the college offers the reqired certificate or degree programs necessary to enter yor chosen field. Yo also may want to investigate opportnities that the school offers for internships, fieldwork, research or stdy abroad. Location. Consider whether yo want to attend a college near yor home or one in a different section of the contry. Yo also might have a preference for a college in a major metropolitan area or a camps located in a small town. Admission standards. Some colleges are very selective abot the stdents that they admit; others have open admissions policies and admit all high school gradates on a first-come, first-served basis. Stdent sccess. Consider the percentage of entering stdents who actally gradate from the college and how long it takes most fll-time stdents to gradate. Yo shold ask college officials abot the sccess their gradates have in finding employment, and the types of jobs their gradates hold. Yo also shold inqire abot the job placement services offered by the college. Camps environment. Consider the qality of the libraries, laboratories, academic spport services and camps hosing. Check ot opportnities for social interaction throgh sororities or fraternities, clbs and other stdent organizations, sports and arts. If yo have an interest in commnity service, find ot if the school has volnteerism programs. Be sre to look into safety and secrity on camps and in the larger commnity. Special interests. Althogh most colleges are coedcational, After yo ve considered these criteria, visit the College Planning section of and select Choosing a College for resorces to help yo match yor personal preferences with colleges and niversities nationwide. Narrow yor list of potential colleges Once yo have generated a list of potential colleges, narrow it down to a manageable nmber no more than six to eight colleges to which yo will apply. There are a variety of resorces to help yo eliminate schools that don t meet yor interests. These resorces inclde: college websites, college brochres and catalogs, college gides from yor school conselor or from the school library or pblic library, college fairs, conversations with family members or friends, and on-camps visits. When visiting campses, talk with stdents and representatives from academic programs, and check ot the varios facilities. Using these resorces, make yor final list of the colleges that most closely meet yor interests. In developing this list, consider the likelihood of yor being admitted and yor ability to afford the cost of attendance. Inclde on yor list one or two schools that interest yo, bt that wold be a stretch for yo from a cost or admissions standpoint. Even if yo ve settled on one college, it s wise to have some backp schools on yor list. Applying for admission After yo ve decided which colleges are on yor apply to list, determine each college s preferred method of application for admission: cstomized application, common application or online application. Yo may need to fill ot individal applications for each school, bt there will be some common elements. Be sre to sbmit yor application well in advance of the deadline and spply all of the information reqested by the college. yo may choose to attend an all-male or all-female college. If religios instrction is important to yo, consider a college sponsored by yor denomination. Stdents who are members of ethnic minority grops may benefit from the spport services offered by a minority-serving college. If yo are interested in a military career, investigate whether the college offers a Reserve Officer Training Corps program, or consider one of the service academies. 4

5 Paying for college Expected Family Contribtion Families are expected to contribte a share of their financial resorces to pay for their children s higher edcation. This contribtion can come from savings and investments, or from the parents or stdent s crrent income. The Expected Family Contribtion is calclated according to a federal government formla that takes into accont factors inclding the stdent s and parents income and net assets, family size, and the nmber of family members in college. Yo can learn more abot and estimate yor EFC by visiting the College Planning section of and selecting Fnding College. The FAFSA File in Janary Stdents, and parents of dependent stdents, provide the information sed to calclate the EFC by completing the Free Application for Federal Stdent Aid. Information that yo spply on the FAFSA helps determine eligibility for federal financial aid programs and for other sorces of stdent aid for college. File the FAFSA as soon as possible after Jan. 1 of the year in which yo are seeking financial aid, and be mindfl of two other deadlines: The college that yo plan to attend may have a deadline for filing the FAFSA, and yor state may have a deadline to qalify for state grant and scholarship programs. Miss either of these deadlines, and yo cold redce the amont of financial aid that yo might receive. Yo don t have to wait for an official acceptance to a college to file a FAFSA. Preparing Filing After Filing The FAFSA Process Complete the FAFSA every year Apply for a PIN for stdent and parent (if dependent) Fill ot FAFSA online at Federal Processor determines EFC Gather tax and other financial docments Sbmit FAFSA with PIN and send electronically Stdent receives SAR Accept award Janary, begin FAFSA process Reslts sent to colleges Review award packages Make pdates Financial aid disbrsed to selected college The preferred method of filing the FAFSA is to se the online version at This version normally prodces more accrate reslts and more rapid processing than yo re likely to get if yo file a paper FAFSA. It s beneficial to have completed yor federal income tax retrn prior to completing the FAFSA becase tax data can be atomatically poplated into the application for yo. If yo need to file the FAFSA before completing yor tax retrn to meet state or college deadlines yo can estimate tax information on the FAFSA, and pdate the information once yo have filed yor tax retrn. As the name implies, the FAFSA is a free application. There is no charge for filing this form. For a fee, some companies offer assistance in completing the FAFSA, bt financial aid professionals in many states offer free help sessions to assist parents and stdents in completing the FAFSA. To locate free FAFSA assistance, visit Yo will have to file the FAFSA sally an abbreviated renewal version of the form for each sbseqent academic year in which yo reqest financial aid to pay college expenses. 5

6 Things to do after yo complete the FAFSA Review yor Stdent Aid Report and make corrections, if necessary. Complete and sbmit yor college application(s). Check with colleges for application deadlines. If selected for verification, sbmit reqired docments to the financial aid office of yor college(s) by the specified deadline. Verification is a process of confirming the information yo sbmitted on yor FAFSA. If yo are selected for verification, the college financial aid office will notify yo of the docments yo are reqired to sbmit. Ensre yor admission application, FAFSA and verification docments are complete and sbmitted by yor college s priority deadline. Check often for messages from yor colleges and the federal processor regarding the stats of yor FAFSA. After taxes are filed, pdate the FAFSA with yor tax information and/or yor parents tax information. If yo can, se the Internal Revene Service Data Retrieval Tool within the FAFSA online. Review and compare the financial aid packages of the colleges to which yo were accepted. Accept financial aid package and college admission no later than May 1 or by yor college s deadline. For qestions, contact the financial aid office at yor chosen colleges. The CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE In addition to the FAFSA, some colleges reqire that yo complete the CSS/ Financial Aid PROFILE. Colleges se this form to determine yor eligibility for the college s own financial aid programs. To sbmit the PROFILE, yo ll pay a $25 registration fee and $16 for each school or scholarship agency that yo want to receive the information. Find ot more abot the PROFILE, inclding a list of schools and scholarship providers that se the form, by visiting profileonline.collegeboard.com. In addition to these applications, yo may be reqired to complete other paperwork to qalify for individal financial aid programs. As yo are completing these forms, it s a great idea to keep copies together in one place. Yo ll need to refer to these forms again in the ftre. Cost of Attendance When comparing the costs of several colleges, consider not only tition and fees, bt also other expenses that yo will incr as a stdent. Yor total cost of attendance also incldes hosing and meal expenses, sch as room and board; books and spplies; transportation costs; personal expenses, sch as clothing, landry, hair care and entertainment expenses; and miscellaneos expenses. To determine yor eligibility for financial aid, each college establishes annal average Costs of Attendance for its stdents. Costs vary widely by individal colleges. To give yo an idea of the average costs, review the following table from the College Board Trends in College Pricing. How Mch Does It Really Cost? Here are the average costs dring and at two-year and for-year schools for fll-time ndergradates, and the percent increase from one school year to the next. Sector Tition and Fees Room and Board Total Charges $ % $ % $ % Pblic Two-Year $3,131 $2,959 $ % $7,419 $7,332 $87 1.2% $10,550 $10,291 $ % Pblic For-Year In-State Pblic For-Year Ot-of-State Private Nonprofit For-Year $8,655 $8,256 $ % $9,205 $8,880 $ % $17,860 $17,136 $ % $21,706 $20,823 $ % $9.205 $8,880 $ % $30,911 $29,703 $1, % $29,056 $27,883 $1, % $10,462 $10,088 $ % $39,518 $37,971 $1, % For-Profit $15,172 $14,737 $ % * * * * * * * * *Sample too small to provide meaningfl information. Yor actal cost of attending a college likely will vary from these figres, and yo have some control over yor higher edcation expenses. For example, an ot-of-state stdent attending a state niversity will pay higher tition rates than a resident of that state. If yo live with yor family and commte to camps, yor hosing costs may be lower, bt yor transportation costs will be higher than if yo lived on camps. The costs of yor books and spplies depend largely on yor corse of stdy. The expenses over which yo have the greatest control inclde those for personal and miscellaneos items. It s a great idea to make a bdget of yor expected annal college costs and stick to a bdget dring yor college years. Sorce: Trends in College Pricing The College Board. 6

8 Determining yor financial need After yor FAFSA is sbmitted and processed, a federal contractor calclates yor EFC and retrns the reslts to yo in a Stdent Aid Report. The same information also is transmitted to the colleges that yo reqested receive the information when yo sbmitted yor FAFSA. Financial aid professionals at the colleges yo have selected se this information to calclate yor financial need. The key formla for determining financial need is as follows: Cost of Attendance Expected Family Contribtion = Financial Need The financial aid office will attempt to meet yor financial need by developing a package of financial aid that may inclde a combination of grants, work-stdy and loans. Yo will be offered this award package to review, and yo have the option to accept or reject the offer. Becase financial aid resorces are limited, the amont awarded to yo might fall short of yor financial need. Keep this nmet need in mind as yo compare schools financial aid packages. Sample award package Cost of Attendance $ 19, Expected Family Contribtion $ Financial Need $ 19, Financial Aid Program Fall Award Spring Award Total Award Federal Pell Grant $ $ $ 1, Direct Stafford Loan $ 2, $ 2, $ 5, Direct PLUS Loan $ 5, $ 5, $ 11, Total Awards $ 9, $ 9, $ 19, NOTE: This sample award package is intended to illstrate the type of information provided in financial aid award letters. The actal format of yor award letter and the types and amonts of aid awarded will differ from this sample depending on the type and costs of the college or niversity yo attend, yor residency stats and yor family s finances. If yo have niqe family circmstances, or yor family circmstances have changed since yo filed the FAFSA, the financial aid administrator may have latitde to make adjstments. This flexibility is limited, however, and adjstments are made at the discretion of the financial aid office. Financial aid comes from several different sorces: Federal sorces The U.S. government is the largest sorce of financial aid for college, spplying 73 percent of all financial aid dollars in To qalify for federal financial aid for college, yo mst complete the FAFSA for each year that yo reqest financial aid to pay college expenses.
