HS College Planning Tip: for Week of April 12


Federal Award Package

You should receive your "Financial Award Package" with information on your qualifying financial aid from each school where you have been admitted.

The "Financial Award Package" will show the cost of attendance and the amount of each financial aid award that will be awarded. The difference between the cost and the amount awarded is the portion that the family is expected to contribute towards the cost of education.

The financial aid awards include:

  • grants,
  • scholarships,
  • federally student loans,
  • work study programs,
  • other college assisted aid

    For information about the "Financial Award Package":
    see our financial aid note 4
