Additional Resources

ASAP Financial Aid Brochure: This document contains information for ASAP students on how to apply for financial aid.

FAFSA Worksheet: Students requesting financial aid must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This worksheet should be used as a guide to help you file online.

Federal Loan Consolidation: Find out how consolidation can simplify and lessen the burden of loan repayment.

Expected Family Contribution (EFC) Calculator: This page computes an estimate of your EFC using a formula very similar to the Federal Methodology approved by Congress and used by school financial aid administrators when awarding federal aid. Although the formula is virtually identical to the Federal Methodology, the EFC calculated by this program could vary from the EFC figures calculated by the Federal Processor and the school’s financial aid administrators. The estimates calculated by this program are not guaranteed to be identical with the results from your official need analysis.

National Student Loan Database: The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) is the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED’s) central database for student aid. NSLDS receives data from schools, guaranty agencies, the Direct Loan program, and other Department of ED programs. NSLDS Student Access provides a centralized, integrated view of Title IV loans and grants so that recipients of Title IV aid can access and inquire about their Title IV loans and/or grant data. Note: Alternative loan data is not typically included on NSLDS. Contact your lender directly for this information.

Direct Loan Entrance Counseling: Before your school disburses your federal direct loan (subsidized or unsubsidized), regulations require that you complete an entrance counseling session. The counseling session provides information about how to manage your student loans, both during and after college.

Direct Loan Exit Counseling: If you are graduating, withdrawing, taking a leave of absence, or fall below half-time status, you must complete an exit seminar that will counsel you on your rights and responsibilities as a borrower of federal direct loans. Graduating students must complete this seminar in order to receive their diploma.
