"I absolutely love this! Originally I went back to school at 25 because I just couldn’t afford it and then they say “oh here’s your financial aid” but you have to wait 3 months and it's just that I can’t do that. And then I find Frank, and the entire reason I can get my bachelor’s degree is because your service exists."

Start Your FAFSA®

You did everything you were supposed to do. You filed your FAFSA® on time. You didn’t miss a single deadline. You even spent time every weekend applying for scholarships. But, despite all your efforts, you still don’t have enough money to cover tuition.

What do you do now? Attend community college? Forego your college dreams?

No, of course not!! Now, it’s time to negotiate.

Did you know you could negotiate or appeal for more financial aid from your college? Here’s how!

How do you know if you can negotiate for more aid?

First, you’ll want to figure out which category fits you best. I’ll outline them for you below.

Major Life Changes

Has your life drastically changed in the past two years? If you fit into this category, you’ll be able to appeal for more aid based on your change in financial circumstances.

Accolades and Accomplishments

For students with stellar grades, you’ll be able to negotiate for more aid based on merit. It helps if you’re an active volunteer at your school or in your community, too!

Multiple Offers

If you applied to another school and they offered you a better aid package, you can use that to negotiate for more aid. Schools will compete for your attendance!

So, if the college you want to attend sees that another school is willing to offer you more money – they’re very likely to match or even exceed the competing offer!
