So, you (or your child) got accepted into your first and second college choices. Great! Two college to choose from! Everything seemed to be falling into place. That is, until you found out, that based on the information filled out on your FAFSA, you don’t qualify for Federal Student Aid to help you cover the cost of your higher education at either school. At this point, you may be asking yourself, “How can I ever afford a college education without Federal Student Aid?” Do you give up and consider other long term and career options? Definitely not.
