Need Based Financial Aid – Best Colleges To Get Aid

The Best Colleges To Get Need Based Financial Aid

Their are three forms of financial aid: Need, Merit, and the college’s own money.  You need to maximize all the forms of financial aid to reduce the cost of college.

Every year the cost of college seems to outpace the rate of inflation. You would think that our weak economy would have an effect on college prices, but it does not. One thing is for certain though, regardless of the state of our economy, the demand for higher education will always be there.

Below is a list of the top colleges for need based financial aid. Even though the sticker price on many of these colleges will be over $60,000 for the 2015-2016 school year, if your family is determined to have financial need (estimate using the Federal FAFSA4caster), many will meet that need 100%.

If your student will be a junior or senior in high school this fall, you should determine your financial need and begin planning your ‘bottom line’ cost of college NOW! Give us a call! We can help sort all this out!
