What’s the FAFSA? What does EFC mean? Is everyone guaranteed financial aid?

There’s a reason our financial aid team gets these questions (and lots more) every year from high school students and parents. Between the forms, the terms, the rules, the types of financial aid...  the whole financial aid process can get pretty confusing! 

 That's why we put together this easy-to-follow free guide.
