The Financial Aid Steps

Step 1: Know your Options

Financial aid includes grants, scholarships, work-study and loans. Some types are based on merit, talents or special abilities. Others are based on financial need.

Step 2: Search for Scholarships

Start searching for scholarships early in your junior year of high school and continue throughout your senior year of college. Avoid paying for scholarship search services, because they donít have access to databases that you canít access on your own.

         You can find scholarship opportunities for free through your high school counseling office, college financial aid office, on or at an ICAN College Planning Center.

Step 3: Get a PIN

Before you apply for federal financial aid, you and your parents should each request a Personal Identification Number (PIN) at

         Apply for a PIN well in advance of completing the FAFSA.

Step 4: Fill out the FAFSA

The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. You must complete this form to be considered for federal aid and many types of state and institutional aid.

         The FAFSA can be completed online at

-    The ICAN College Planning Centers offer free assistance in completing the FAFSA. Call (877) 272-4692 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              (877) 272-4692      end_of_the_skype_highlighting for an appointment.

Step 5: Receive the SAR

The SAR, or Student Aid Report, is generated by the U.S. Department of Education after the FAFSA has been processed and sent electronically to the schools youíve listed on the form. This process takes about four weeks from the time of submission, and is intended to officially notify you that the process has been completed. If you provide an e-mail address on your FAFSA, a message will be sent prompting you to access the SAR online. If you donít indicate an e-mail address, a SAR will be mailed to you.

Step 6: Review the Award Letters

The award letter is generated once the college receives your FAFSA results.  The letter is part of the financial aid package, which also includes loan documents.  Remember that the award letter is an estimate and is subject to change, especially if youíve estimated figures on your FAFSA. Read the award letter thoroughly and make sure you understand each type of aid offered.

  • Read the instructions carefully and check to see if anything needs to be signed and returned to the school by a certain deadline. Some colleges will ask you to sign and return the letter. This doesnít commit you to attend; it merely reserves the funds.

Step 7: Be a Wise Borrower

         Loans are a form of financial aid that must be repaid. Loans can be a helpful Ė and sometimes necessary Ė source to help fund your education. Borrowing should be your last option but if you must take out a loan, borrow wisely.

         Borrow only what you need. Just because your award letter includes a loan amount, you are not required to borrow the entire sum.

Step 8:  Applying for and obtaining a Federal Student Loan

         Your school financial aid office will notify you whether it participates in the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP) and you need to choose a student loan lender or if the school participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program (Direct Loans) and the U.S. Department of Education will be the lender for your Federal loans.

         Your school financial aid office will provide you with instructions on completing a Master Promissory Note (MPN).

         Town and Country Credit Union lender code is 832458.  This number will need to be placed on the Master Promissory Note (MPN)
