Who Should 应用 For 援助?

每一个人! We advise all students, no matter their income level, to complete the FAFSA form so they can be considered for every available resource.

For some costs not covered by 联邦 grants, the Office of Federal Student 援助 (within the U.S. Department of Education) may award loan options. Accessing these loans requires that you file your FAFSA. You’ll work directly with Beacon to seek approval (when necessary), complete registration, and handle the distribution of funds.

  • 学生: You will be automatically eligible for loans once your FAFSA is processed. These loans allow you to defer payment while in school and have both long-term and income-based repayment options. Direct subsidized loans and direct unsubsidized loans are available based on your financial circumstances.
  • 家长: You can seek approval for a Direct PLUS Loan. These loans may be deferred while your student is enrolled and offer 10-year repayment plans.

Based on the results of your FAFSA, you might qualify for the Federal Work-Study (FWS) program. You’ll be authorized to work and earn an amount calculated for you; if eligible, this amount will be included in your award package. As a student, you’re allowed to work up to 20 hours per week.
