Financial Aid


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (known as the FAFSA) is a form that can be prepared annually by current and prospective college students (undergraduate and graduate) in the United States to determine their eligibility for student financial aid.  Financial aid helps students pay for college and is provided through the federal government, state, school, or a private business or organization.
How Aid is Awarded: 
Need Based:  Awarded based on a a family's financial need.
Merit Based:  Awarded for a talent--academic, athletic, etc.
Both students and parents are required to have an FSA (Federal Student Aid) ID in order to apply for federal student aid.  Students will use their FSA ID to electronically sign the FAFSA.  To register for an FSA ID, go to https://fsaid.ed.gov.
The College Planning Center of Rhode Island is an excellent free service for  parents and students.  They assist with all aspects of the college process including financial aid.  Learn more at  www.cpcri.org. Three Locations:  Warwick Mall, Bell Tower Plaza in Bristol, and Boys & Girls Club in Cumberland.
