Financial Aid Resources
We recommend that those interested in financial aid pick up a free copy of the Department of Education's Funding Education Beyond Highschool. This guide is a good general introduction to federal financial aid. Copies are also available at Birthingway. You may also find your answers to general aid questions by calling the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FED-AID.
A privately run site, but still a great resource for information on financial aid. Has a great selection of financial aid calculators -- budget calculators, loan calculators, interest calculators, etc. Also has a very complete list of alternative/private (non-federally backed) lenders.
