Going to college? Here’s what you should do and when – Part II

It’s no secret that college is expensive. Really expensive. But there are lots of scholarships, grants, loans and other ways you can help pay for school. And we’re here to help.

On Monday, we shared with you an admissions timeline, which gave you a step-by-step list of what you should be doing (and when) to prepare for college. Today, we have a financial aid timeline to help you get ready to pay for school.

If you’re a senior, you should be preparing to fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and figuring out how much your family can contribute to your college bills by using a FAFSA forecaster.

Don’t fret. Financial aid may seem scary, but it’s really not.

If you have any questions just let us know.
