Brooke Kramer, a financial aid officer at Argosy University in Salt Lake City, talks about how does financial aid work. It is very simple.
Pretty much the very first thing you’re going to do when you’re inquiring about financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. All university and schools do require that this is completed before they can decide whether or not you will qualify for federal aid.
Now when you complete the application you want copies of your most recent tax forms along with your parents. If you are a dependent student, if you have any other questions regarding how to complete the FAFSA. You can also visit the Department of Education website where they have a lot of questions that they can answer for you.
