There was a lot of different hoops I had to jump through like proving income and things like that but in the end everything I did was essential for the process. Its hard though finding the right information for applying especially when you're a newly independent student in your taxes. Also exclusions on gpa and other things like dropping classes aren't clear to me as far as how much aid I will receive each year. This is why I am applying for other scholarships/aid so that these discrepancies don't leave me without the aid I need for the year.

There are not many scholarship opportunities for me my freshman year. I applied undecided major and that affects your ability to get scholarships. Also at a school of 40,000 undergrads you must be one of the top 1% to receive any financial aide.

I got some student aid. Your application for the university automatically applies you for a bunch of freshman scholarships, but check within your major department for additional ones.

My freshman year I had my tuition almost completely covered with financial aid. Still, that left me with high-priced housing to take care of on my own, and my second year, I barely got half of my tuition in financial aid. Student loans were offered in an amount that would cover all my costs, but student loans are scarily expensive in the long run.

I am not sure about how the other departments handle scholarships, but the College of Agricultural Sciences (CALS) does give out generous amounts of money to scholarship recipients. It all comes down to you completing your scholarship application as early as possible.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
