The college financial aid system is designed to help relieve this burden with its grants, scholarships, student loans, and tax incentives. This system provides relief for parents of all income levels—not just low
or moderate‐income families.
The US Congress, The Department of Education, The Internal Revenue Service, state governments, colleges and universities, as well as their financial aid officers all have a hand in making or interpreting the laws, rules, regulations, and policies governing financial aid. As a result, financial aid rules are in constant flux. Therefore visitors should be aware that information presented in this website is subject to change. Any significant college planning should be done in consultation with a qualified advisor to be certain that you are using the most current and up to date information.
