Free financial aid help for lower income students

Free financial aid help for lower income students

Two of the most difficult questions about college - How much student aid will I get? and What will college really cost me? - were answered for nearly 11,000 low-income students participating in the new Access for All™ program, which provided a combination of services that researchers recently identified as key to increasing how many low-income students attend college - individualized assistance preparing the federal student aid application (FAFSA) and insight into their aid eligibility.

Sponsored by StudentAid.com and student loan guarantor USA Funds, the Access for All program offered each student free FAFSA preparation and a College Cost & Planning Report™, which calculated and compared their aid eligibility, net prices, and the out-of-pocket costs for six colleges of their choice from among 6,500. All Access for AllTM participants came from households with an income of less than $40,000.
