College Options and Information

Students, parents and education administrators can benefit from the sage advice provided by the Department of Education when researching options for students wishing to attend college.  A couple of these tips include:


1. Check the cost. Make sure the school gives you a clear statement of its tuition and fees. Remember that any federal financial aid you get will be applied first to paying the school’s tuition and fees. If there’s any money left over, the school will give it to you to help you pay for things such as food and rent.

2. Call these numbers. Call your local Better Business Bureau, state higher education agency, or consumer protection division of your state attorney general’s office to find out whether there have been any complaints about the school. Call the toll-free number at the U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid Information Center (1-800-4-FED-AID) if you have any questions about your financial aid at the school.
