Tip of the Week
Advice from Kamper Floyd, Director of the Metro Jackson Get2College Center: It’s financial aid season. Now that you have submitted your FAFSA, it’s your job to stay in touch with financial aid offices at the colleges you are seriously thinking about attending. Don’t wait on them to tell you if you need to submit supporting financial aid paperwork. Remember, you won’t be able to compare the financial aid packages of different colleges until at least April. Sometimes it can be much later than that, if you haven’t submitted all of your documents. Consult with your high school counselor to make sure he or she has submitted your school records. As always, keep in mind that this is a stressful time for everyone – you, your parents, college officials, and your high school counselors. Stay on top of things, but do so in a nice, courteous way.
