“The first thing I had to do when I decided to go back to school and pursue an MBA in marketing was research all of my financial options. This free financial aid guide was very helpful, and the FAFSA document that comes with it allowed me to get a head start on finding the funds I needed.”
– Scott Valentine, MBA Candidate

“If I had not obtained financial aid, I would never have been able to afford college. Thanks to financial aid, I was able to earn both a bachelor’s and master’s degree, which have enabled me to work in a career that I love.”
