Lovell, Susan, Ed.
A step-by-step guide to paying for college is presented that tells how and where to apply for financial aid, lists expenses at 3,200 schools and colleges, and shows how to estimate financial need. The book also describes how a student can manage money more effectively in order to live on a limited budget; tells how some students and families stretch their resources and cut the costs of education; helps families develop a personal financing plan and timetable for putting together the necessary resources; discusses recent changes in federal aid programs and eligibility requirements; shows how to apply to federal, state, local, and private agencies that administer financial aid; and provides information on colleges that offer tuition and fee waivers and special tuition payment plans (e.g., by credit card). Simple charts and worksheets are used throughout. Also included are sample financial aid forms, a bibliography of aid sources, a glossary of educational terms, and a financial aid application checklist. (LB)
