SPRING FORWARD this weekend!!
Remember to change your clocks so you’re not late for class.
FAFSA forever….FAFSA forever
Before you come back from Spring Break..
File your 14/15 FAFSA at
*The FAFSA is free to file
When you send an email pleading for more scholarship money and you send it from your high-end phone…..schools notice those details.
They can start to wonder about your priorities.
They also notice designer handbags, boots and the car you drive up in.
When you plagiarize (which is totally messed up) and you get caught (which you most certainly will) the professor can issue you an F for the class. You can try to appeal it (Ha!) but the evidence will be stacked against you ( busted) and you can kiss that tuition money goodbye.
Do your own work. It’s a better financial choice.
Some colleges will automatically list a parent PLUS loan on your award letter. Be aware that this loan is not “in the bag” until your parent actually applies for it, is approved, and completes the promissory note for it.
It can be confusing when schools do that….
Many colleges have recommended fafsa deadlines of March 1st.
Make sure you and your parent(s) get it done in time.
(It’s a free application)
When it comes to dating and mating…
People are attracted to others who are financially responsible. It’s right up there with healthy teeth and good hygiene.
Keep yo mind on yo money and yo money on yo mind.
Unless you prefer to be a hermit.
Maybe your parent or grandparent isn’t internet savvy?
Check out everyoneon.org
It can help them get their web flippers wet
If you feel you must write a Financial Aid appeal letter…keep things in a healthy perspective. Supporting documents like medical bills, unemployment notices, police reports, etc. will help your case.
Credit card, vacation, wedding bills will not.
As you start receiving financial aid award letters from colleges it is important that you not get flattered and distracted by grand scholarship offers. Remember to compare schools by the bottom line: The actual price after you deduct the various scholarships they offer you. A lot of times when a scholarship is huge…so is the price of the school.
A snow day is a good time to get your 14/15 FAFSA done….
(no charge to file a FAFSA)
