$$$ Financial Aid – FAFSA Time!

Now that most of you have gone through the admissions process and have been accepted into Barton College, it’s time to think about how you are going to finance your education. Some people have money saved up specifically for college while others may not. Cutting the cost of your college education can be very simple if you do some research, planning, and saving.

There are many websites that provide a search engine for various types of scholarships, grants, and student/parent loans. It is key to make very wise decisions and talk with your parents or guardians about this. I would advise everyone to talk with your teachers, supervisors, co-workers, school guidance counselors, etc. about how to pay for your college education.

Be sure to check with the county and state that you currently reside in to see if they have any scholarships for high school seniors. Sometimes they may offer scholarships or grants to students who reached a high achievement while in high school. If you are a member of a church, you may find that your church offers scholarships to help you pay for school. So, be sure to check around and do your research.

Lastly, I would suggest that everyone apply for financial aid through FAFSA. I know many of you have heard college admissions counselors talk to you about this. This is very important if you want to receive some type of financial aid. I will provide the FAFSA link and a few other helpful links below so everyone can check them out:
