The first question many parents ask is, “Why do I have to do my FAFSA?” If your family is worried about paying for the high cost of education, FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is necessary to receive either federal aid or aid offered directly from the colleges.
The amount is determined by the EFC (Estimated Family Contribution) and is designed to bridge the gap between what a family can pay and what the education will cost. All this adds up to a terrific advantage that will increase the dollars you have to spend.
But why should a family with plenty of money apply to FAFSA? The answer here is simple: What if? We, at Perfect Fit College Consultants, make sure that each of our students has a financial safety net. More than once, we have seen families make plans for the most expensive schools in the country and then have a personal disaster poison their finances at the last minute. More than once, we have seen families fall safely into the safety net we have provided.
In the college business, we’d like to think that every student’s dreams can come true. Fill out those forms, no matter your situation—just in case.
