College Financing Plan

The College Financing Plan is a consumer tool that provides a national standard for financial aid award notices and makes it easier for students to compare awards from different institutions. The shopping sheet provides students with key information including:

  • How much one year of school will cost;
  • Financial aid options with a clear differentiation between grants and scholarships, which do not have to be repaid, and loans, which do;
  • The net costs after grants and scholarships are taken into account;
  • Vital information about student results, including comparative information about default rates, graduation rates, and median debt levels for the school;
  • And potential monthly payments for the federal student loans the typical student would owes after graduation.

Students will find their Financing Plan online in their Campus Connection portal. Access at: Campus Connection > Student Center > Finances > View Financial Aid.
