    Tip of the Week

    Tip of the WeekAdvice from Dr. Kamper Floyd, Jackson Get2College Center Director: April is a continuation of the financial aid process that you started in January. Now that the FAFSA is complete, you should be expecting financial aid award letters from the schools you listed on your FAFSA. Each letter should contain information about your merit based scholarship, federal grants or loans, state grants, and other need-based grants from the institution (if you qualify for them). Remember to judge each letter the same way. Colleges don’t format the letters in the same way, so be careful when comparing them. If you have questions about your award, call the school’s financial aid office and speak with a counselor; counselors are there to help you through this process. Just remember that April is one of their busiest months–be kind and courteous on the phone, and you’ll be more likely to get the answers you are looking for. Don’t be surprised if you have to wait to talk to a counselor or if a counselor has to call you back.
