  1. Hello all, I'm an American student in my final year of university applying to graduate school. I have finally received all my decisions, but I'm having trouble understanding how to apply for loans and how to know what I've received. I'm starting to feel anxious because I've also applied to several schools outside of the country that I would really like to attend, but accommodation is starting to book up while I figure out my financial situation. I was expecting to receive at least some loans, but I was surprised to not receive anything. I would really appreciate your help in clarifying wh
  2. I'm applying for grad school and completing the 20/21 Fafsa app as in independent student - FAFSA application asks this question (box 45J): "Money received, or paid on your behalf (e.g., bills), not reported elsewhere on this form. This includes money that you received from a parent or other person whose financial information is not reported on this form and that is not part of a legal child support agreement." If parents paid undergraduate tuition in 2019 while I was a dependent, should I enter the total amount of tuition paid as an answer to this question? Same question with regard
  3. I'm applying for fafsa for a phd I'm starting this fall, and am planning on filing as an independent. The only thing I am nervous about is that I am planning on staying under their insurance, but I am under the impression that this is not an issue. I am also wondering about entering their demographics. While I'm living on my own dime, my parents are fairly well off and very educated (mom masters and dad PsyD), so I am wondering if this could somehow hurt my aid offerings?
  4. Hello Everyone! I don’t know if it’s too early to be thinking about grad school but I graduate next year and I want to pursue my masters (Psychology) I’m not sure yet if I want to pursue that or pursue a masters in LMHC. Anyways, I have a couple of questions regarding the whole process 1. Did you apply to in state or out of state grad schools? How many schools should I apply to? (So far I have three in mind) 2. Money. I don’t have any undergrad loans whatsoever but would loans be worth it now in graduate school? Did FAFSA or school offer you anything? (I’m
  5. As an undergraduate, I became ineligible for federal aid due to maxing out my cumulative attempted credit hours (who knew starting college as a directionless 18 year old might be messy?) I'm thankful that my first graduate program acceptance letter came today, and that the program has offered full funding and stipend for the duration of my studies...but I will need to find a bit of extra aid to cover/refinance/push into deferment some higher interest debts that, while I can manage, will make my budget ultra-tight otherwise. My question is, does satisfactory academic progress (SAP - what the Fe
  6. Has anyone ever deferred their acceptance to a program until the next academic year? Depending on the financial aid packages I get (and if I get taken off the waitlist somewhere) I may have to wait to attend until the next year. Any advice?
  7. Hey all, I’m thoroughly confused as to how I’m supposed to choose a school when I don’t know how much money I will be awarded for loans, etc. Is there a way to find this out before making a decision? Also, how much is normally distributed for living expenses since working during school is pretty unrealistic. Please help!
  8. For this question, would graduate school count as college, or is that separate? If it's separate, would I just fill out "0" if nobody else in my household is pursuing a college degree? The question is: How many people in your household will be in college in 2017-2018?
  9. For a grad art program? I'm having the hardest time figuring out if I can apply anywhere for scholarships/grants for artist attending grad MFA programs? All of the so called organized websites to join and search from, give me SCAM like info. or nothing at all. How about ADHD? I'm Norwegian, Danish? I was born in MN? Over 45?
  10. Hey, everyone I was recently admitted to Simmons and Smith MSW programs, but both were entirely too expensive (around 80k in debt, taking into account both scholarships and grants). I've been pretty bummed about it and now I'm worried I won't be able to pull off going to grad school in the fall, even despite getting accepted. I have also been admitted to BC and Loyola, but haven't heard back about funding for either. I'm hopeful, but still skeptical. I have read a few threads asking how much debt is too much, etc. and it seems that the general consensus is that it's a personal
  11. Hello! I just got my first acceptance into SLP school (yay) but the reality of how I am going to pay for it is setting in. This first school acceptance is one of my most expensive schools, its about 75,000 for the entire program. I have about 15,000 dollars in undergrad loans so I am looking at about 90,000 in loans minimum. Is that totally insane? Has anyone here put themselves through grad school independently? Whats the smartest way to go about this? My school doesn't list any SLP specific scholarships, but I would like to look into that. I really want this, but I also dont

    In order to be considered for scholarships (graduate assistantships offered by the school and things of that sort), did you need to have submitted a FAFSA report? Or is that after you are admitted and then you submit the FAFSA to then receive funding? Is it too late to already send it in to be considered for funding? I'm just a little confused...there was no indication on my application to send in FAFSA before the grad application deadline and some applications asked about tax info but I thought that was it....?
  13. When do you plan to submit your FAFSA? Is there a deadline? I have some missing tax info left to fill out so I'm just trying to figure out if I need to worry about that now or what (or if it'll interfere with finding out about funding from the schools I applied to)
  14. I applied to a doctoral program in Louisiana. I love it to death, and gladly would go except the funding is very low. Especially coming from Texas, the funding for students here is over 2x the amount. I have talked to students in grad school in LA but I really don't want to accrue a large amount of federal loans. Does anyone have any ideas of the funding options in the state?
  15. Hi guys! I was recently admitted to an MA program. They think they can offer me full funding and that I should expect an official decision "soon." Their website says: "Students who accept fellowship and/or grant awards will be required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)." It doesn't elaborate as to why students need to fill out the FAFSA, nor am I certain of what type of funding my program is offering me (although I do know I'll get a TAship in the second year.) I just completed the FAFSA, and my EFC was higher than I thought it would be, perhaps because I'm
  16. I am a Canadian student applying to an American school that is asking for the FAFSA to be filled out. However, I do not have a social security number and you need one to fill the form out. What can I do?
