If you are going to college soon, you may want to look into applying for student loans and other student aid. The Library has links to all of the Federal Student Aid publications which are available online. I'm posting the most important links here, but we have more information at the Library that you may find useful. If we don't have the information handy we can help you find it - that is what we are here for!
Here are some of the most important links to start out with:
http://www.studentaid.ed.gov/pubs offers student- and parent-oriented publication ins PDF. Note that we have a number of items in PDF that are not available in hard copy so be sure to visit this page to find a variety of useful fact sheets and other items that you can print out.
http://www.edpubs.gov is the ordering site that students and parents should visit to order single copies of our hard copy publications.
http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ is the site you will go to apply for student aid. There is a lot of good information on here including application deadlines, college codes, and the FAFSA4caster which can help you estimate how much you will need to contribute for your college education.
If anyone else has some good on-line resources, please let us know about them.
