How do I start getting money for college?
In October, the Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FASFA) will open. ALL STUDENTS SHOULD COMPLETE THIS PROCESS. It doesn't matter how much your parents and/or you make. This is the first step in helping paying for college.
FASFA requires a lot of financial information, so start getting that information together soon.
What happens after I complete FASFA?
You'll receive a Student Aid Report that gives your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). This number helps determine what grants and loans you may qualify for as well as information about that aid. When the state of Maryland reviews your EFC, it will offer you other grants and loans as well.
