COLLEGE FINANCING PLAN (formerly the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet)

The College Financing Plan is a resource to help consumers understand their educational costs and the aid available to meet those costs.  It is a single page the U.S. Department of Education developed that may be used as a stand-alone financial aid offer or as a cover sheet with a school’s existing aid offer.  The standard format helps consumers easily compare the cost of attendance and aid offers across schools. 

A College Financing Plan will be provided to prospective students who apply for Title IV aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The College Financing Plan will be included with the prospective students financial aid offer.
