Check out the new Federal Student Aid Estimator provided by the Department of Education. It can help you understand your potential options for paying for college by providing you an estimate of how much federal student aid you may be eligible for. This is an estimate tool and does not guarantee you will be eligible for these funds. Eligibility depends on the completion of the 2024-2025 FAFSA.
