In her latest blog post on the GreatCollegeAdvice.com website, Andrea Aronson, a college admissions specialist based in Westfield, New Jersey, gives readers her list of preferred websites that students and their families can use when trying to understand the world of financial aid.
Her recommendations are timely since financial aid application season is about to be in full swing. The Free Application for Financial Student Assistance (FAFSA), which must be filled out by all students who are seeking federal governmental aid, will become available on January 1, 2013, while the CSS Profile, an additional form required by selected colleges who provide institutional aid, became available on October 1, 2012. Ms. Aronson wrote a previous blog post in which she provided information about the CSS Profile and some of its confusing aspects.
The Web is filled with lots of information about financial aid. Unfortunately, having too much information can also be overwhelming, and students and their families dont necessarily know the best sources to look to for their particular questions and needs, stated Ms. Aronson. Ive tried to provide them with a list of what I consider to be the most helpful and trusted sites.
