If it seems that paying for college has become more challenging than getting into college, you’re not alone. Rising tuition costs have families across the country asking the question, “How are we going to pay for all this?

 

Financing a college education can be a painstaking, stressful process. Frank’s here to help ease the burden so students can concentrate their energy on one of life’s most rewarding and enriching experiences.

How do I apply for FAFSA?

Every year, a new wave of students and families scramble to figure out how to fill out the FAFSA, the “Free Application for Federal Student Aid,” the first step to getting federal financial aid.

 

Filing a FAFSA form is the first step towards paying for college, and it’s often the most difficult step. Frank set out to change that. Our online version of the application takes about four minutes to complete – all you need is your personal information, your family information, and your financial information.

 

When you file your FAFSA, you’re automatically applying for federal grants (including the Pell Grant), loans and scholarships to pay for college. In addition, many colleges will use the FAFSA to determine if a student qualifies for funding provided by the school and the state.

Getting Additional Financial Aid Help

Filing your FAFSA is the first and most important step, but there are many more.

 

While most students receive at least some financial aid through filing their FAFSA, it’s often not enough to cover all college-related expenses. Outside scholarships, part-time jobs and college savings plan can help fill those gaps.

 

To keep track of all their options, students and parents need a plan. That’s why Frank compiled this resource.

 

Whether you’re confused by the FSA ID or in need of general budgeting tips, our resource center will guide you through all the challenges you’ll face when paying for college. We’ll help you create a plan and stick to that plan so students can focus on what matters most: their education.
