The past month we focused on college admissions applications.  Now that most of you have submitted your applications for admission (and those of you who have not will be submitting them very soon…right?) it is time to switch gears to focus on Financial Aid Applications (yes that is plural).  Did you know that while the FAFSA is the applications needed to apply for federal financial aid, your college could require one, two or even three additional applications for institutional financial aid?!?  How do you know which one(s) to submit? How do you find out the deadlines? Where in the world do you get all the information you’ll need to submit the forms? 

First off… Don’t Panic! The Experts at College Funding Connection are here to help!

Through the month of December, our weekly tips and blog posts will focus on the CSS Profile and other institutional financial aid applications- explanation of difficult questions, the different aspects of each form and answers to your questions every week!  In January we’ll switch to focus on the FAFSA, as you may or may not know already, the first day to submit the FAFSA is January 1st… hard to believe that the 2013 is right around the corner!
