If you're dependent on your parents, you'll need financial information from them to complete the forms. Otherwise, you'll be sharing your own financial snapshot. In awarding financial aid, the U.S. government is interested in determining four pieces of information:
- Parent or parents' available income (if applicable)
- Parent or parents' available assets (if applicable)
- Student's available income
- Student's available assets
The information you provide is used to figure out your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) which is an estimate of how much you can afford to pay for college. The cost of attendance at any college includes: tuition, fees, room and board, books and supplies, personal expenses estimate, and travel estimate, Financial aid officers determine your individual need by subtracting your EFC from the cost of attendance at their school. Your financial aid package is intended to meet your needs. It will consist of three types of aid: grants and scholarships, Federal work-study, and student loans.
If you are a U.S. military veteran, you have even more options available to you to attend Crescent. Learn more about Veterans Benefits here.
The types of financial aid available include:
- Federal Pell Grants
- Federal Stafford Loans
- VA Funding & MTA (Military Tuition Assistance)
- WIA/WIN Funding
To be eligible for Federal educational aid, you must have a high school diploma or GED.
Many of our students end up paying for their whole Crescent program from these sources and have living expenses left over. In addition, alternative financing options are available.
Where there's a will, there's a way.
