  • Is FAFSA still free at age 24?

    I read somewhere that it's limited to age/or cant get financial aid when 24 is that true? What does this mean exactly?

    I read somewhere that it's limited to age/or cant get financial aid when 24 is that true? What does this mean exactly? "Undergraduate students who are under age 24 as of December 31 of the award year are considered to be dependent for federal student aid purposes unless they are married, have dependents other than a spouse, are an orphan, are a veteran or active duty member of the US Armed Forces or satisfy other very limited criteria." Edit: If I'm just misunderstanding then can i give it go to college? Though honestly it feels late for me :/. Everyone acquaintance ahead of the curve, and I'd feel to ashamed to attend a high school reunion lol

  • Why do most colleges give bad financial aid packages?

    The only ones that give good financial aid packages are the Ivy leagues, where you can go to school for free if you live under a certain income.

  • Student Loans and Debt?

    I’m a Pre-Med major going to Penn State in the fall. I’m an out of state student therefore tuition is considerably higher. I applied to no other schools except for Penn State and Loyola but I chose the former due to them having my major and also being the furthest from home.

    I’m a Pre-Med major going to Penn State in the fall. I’m an out of state student therefore tuition is considerably higher. I applied to no other schools except for Penn State and Loyola but I chose the former due to them having my major and also being the furthest from home. Tuition is $55,000 and I told my mother that I could take a year off but she insists on me going. I have no outside scholarships and i only get a $5,000 from FAFSA despite my family being considerably poor. Penn State gave me an extra $5,000 so now tuition is down to $45,000 which is still a lot to pay. I want to make my mother proud as she sacrificed her old life to bring me to this country but I can’t do that if I’m in debt straight out of college. What do i do financially because we’ve already committed to the school and orientation is coming up soon. I’d rather not back out now as I am excited about the prospect of college and realizing my goals. Any help is appreciated

    Best answer: You go to school to get a degree which makes you employable. Never lose site of that. Ideally you get through school with minimal student loan debt. The school you hate was your choice. I recommend going to a Community College for a year, finish off an Associate's Degree, get your GPA up, and then transfer for your Junior and Senior year to a University where you can obtain the degree you need for employment. This will allow you to have time to research that University and make sure the second time you truly find the right fit. As far as work goes you are an Adult. I would explain to your parents that they don't have money for you, and they or you taking out tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt makes no sense. I would work part time through the week / weekends, and as much as possible when school is out - Summer, other breaks, etc... I would save as much as possible for school. Apply for Grants, Scholarships, Work Study through the FAFSA and other avenues at the school and in the community.

    I’m starting college this fall and still have 2000 left to pay for my tuition. I know it doesn’t seem like much but I don’t want to start taking out loans my first year of college. Are there any more scholarships I can apply for this late in the game? I calculated how much money I would have before school starts from working my full time job and I will still have very little money after books, meal plans, and tuition all together. Can anyone help me out? My parents try to but don’t fully understand college.
