Reading Your SAR (Student Aid Report)
Once the admissions decisions are released to anxious seniors, the task of sifting through the aid reports begins. Each year millions of prospective college students are baffled by the financial side of attending college. Financial Aid offices present lengthy "Award" offers that at times can be confusing and stressful. Online resources such as Fastweb and Federal Direct Loans offer explanations and calculations that might help clarify. The College & Career Center at TCHS has created a spreadsheet to breakdown each offer, side by side for students and parents to compare, see Mrs. Sisson for a copy. For additional assistance, students should contact their university's Financial Aid office.
