Academic Tip of the Month – College Financial Aid


Seniors & senior families should attempt to apply for financial aid as early as possible in the calendar year (I recommend completing these applications by the end of this month if possible). This requires some planning and getting at least the majority of your taxes completed or at least a solid estimate completed in time to finish the application.

Junior families, this is a good reminder that it is helpful to think ahead and see how your 2020 returns will look when you apply for financial aid in 2022.


Here are some of my favorite financial aid resources:

  1. FinAid

  2. Forbes Guide to FAFSA & CSS Profile

  3. Scholarships.com Top 10 Tips

  4. NY Times

  5. *Numerous great articles on NY Times – just search “NYTimes Financial Aid
