Financial Aid Process Tips

Will you be heading to college in the Fall?  Don’t forget to apply for financial aid!  Many families avoid the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year because they are intimidated by the application process.  Fortunately, there are resources available to help you. 
Here are five tips via US News to help make the financial aid process simple:
  • Visit Your Guidance Counselor - High school guidance counselors are there to help you.  They can point you in the right direction and provide you with information on where you can find important financial aid resources.
  • Financial Aid Advisor – Contact one of our financial aid advisors at Bramson ORT.  We are happy to help make the process of applying for financial aid a little easier.
  • Google Helpouts – Get help filling out FAFSA in the comfort of your own home.  Google Helpouts are scheduled at specific times to give users live video tutorials with personalized attention.
  • Federal Student Aid Office – Visit the FAFSA website.  They have a FAQ page, live chat, or you can choose to speak with a representative over the phone.  Students can even ask financial aid questions on Twitter
It is recommended that students fill out their FAFSA applications immediately after January 1stto ensure they do not miss out on any available aid.  For most college the deadline for enrollment for Summer and Fall 2014 has past, Bramson ORT College is currently accepting Admissions Application for the Summer and Fall 2014.  Take advantage of these resources, and receive the financial aid you are entitled to when you attend Bramson ORT this Summer or Fall 2014!
