College Planning Source is proud to help students in Southern California to navigate the ins and outs of financial planning for your college experience.

Understanding the Financial Aid Process

When should you apply for financial aid? When will you receive it if your application is accepted? These are just some of the questions that families have regarding the financial aid process, and we’re happy to help.

First of all, it is important to note that financial aid applications or filled out after applying for admission to the college(s) of your choice. Don’t worry if you don’t have your exact income figures. The application allows you to estimate your household income. Once your tax returns are competed for the year, you will have to file these to verify that your estimated income is correct. As the awards start to come in, you will have to compare schools and determine which one to attend. At this time, you can commit to the University of your choice and any financial aid you were awarded will help pay your tuition.
