  14. 14. What is student financial aid?<br />Financial aid is money from federal, state, and private sources used to pay college costs. There are two general types of aid:  gift aid and self-help aid. <br />Gift aid: The two types of gift aid are grants and scholarships. Generally grants and scholarships are the same thing - aid given to a student for which the student does not have to work or have an obligation to repay.<br />Self-help aid: There are also two kinds of self-help aid, loans and employment.<br />Loans - money used to pay current expenses with an obligation for repayment at some future time, usually with interest <br />Employment - part time campus or off-campus job <br />There are multiple sources of financial aid awards. Some examples are: <br />State programs <br />Federal programs <br />College and University programs <br />Local, regional, national private programs (foundations, clubs, organizations <br />
  15. 15. What is student financial aid based on?<br />There are different qualifications for various financial aid programs: "merit", "need", and other criteria. <br />Merit-based:Financial aid based on special talents, achievements, or skills of a student. Examples of merit-based awards are academic, drama, music, and athletic scholarships. <br />Need-based:Financial aid based on the difference between the total cost of attending a specific college program and a family's ability to pay that cost as calculated using standard formulas. <br />Other based:Financial aid based on neither merit nor need. Examples include grants based on state residence, jobs, campus work, parent loans, some student loans. <br />

  19. 19. What are college costs?<br />College costs vary widely. Most of the difference is in tuition and fees, which are lower at public institutions because the state subsidizes in-state residents.  Other costs are much the same at public or private institutions.  Costs that are generally considered are: <br />Tuition <br />Required fees <br />Room <br />Meals <br />Books and Supplies <br />Personal expenses <br />Transportation <br />North Carolina offers students a variety of excellent college choices, both public and private. Don't let the costs scare you off; financial aid can offset the costs for many students and families, as the rest of this outline will make clear. <br />
  20. 20. Loans<br />Stafford Loan<br />The Federal Stafford Loan is the most widely used loan in the student education loan program because of its low interest rate and wide availability. Repayment terms are up to 10 years.<br />A Subsidized Stafford Loan is available to students who have financial need.

  24. 24. You Can Go to College<br />The world today is very different than it used to be. In today's society, you cannot afford NOT to go to college. You don't have to be rich to go to college today. There is more than $50 billion in financial aid available in this country each year. <br />You can go to college, even if no one in your family has gone before. But it is never too early to start saving for college. If you and your family are able to save a little something each month, look into North Carolina's National College Savings Program. <br />
  25. 25. Helpful Information for Free<br /> Now is also the time to start learning about scholarships, grants, and work-study programs.
