Its time for another Daily Scholarship and Financial Aid Tip in about two minutes, by JR The College Money Man
This is episode 39 and today we are talking about How To Get Additional Financial Aid From Your School Just By Asking;
Recently while doing some “student on the street” interviews about experiences with paying for college, I met Jasmine, a student who found most of the money she needed for college through her fathers employer. However, she also revealed she received additional aid from her school in the form of grants:
Schools don’t talk about this often, however many allocate emergency financial aid funds for their best students. Students like Jasmine that have higher GPA’s and a somewhat higher EFC are people that schools are willing to invest in. These students have a higher likelihood of completing their education and graduating, and therefore help keep the schools graduation rate higher. So if you have a solid GPA and academic background and need additional aid, take the time to talk to you advisor, department chair, and financial aid office to seek help. They may have additional funds to help keep you on track towards graduation.
