FINANCIAL AID TOOLS AND THE NEBRASKA OPPORTUNITY GRANT
The Financial Aid Calculator gives students an opportunity to see how much money they might have to save up for loans and to be able to calculate college costs based on inflation.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FINANCIAL AID
The Financial Aid Estimator is a helpful way to get a quick estimate of your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). It is not as accurate as the College Funding Estimator from EducationQuest but it is a lot easier to use. Keep in mind that the FAFSA is the final resource that determines what the official EFC is and whether you are Pell Grant eligible.
The State of Nebraska offers a grant opportunity for some students who apply to a Nebraska college or university. The Nebraska Opportunity Grant (NOG) is awarded though post-secondary institutions within the state. Students are encouraged to apply early and complete their FAFSA before the deadlines established by each institution in order to give themselves the best chance to receive a Nebraska Opportunity Grant.
The Guide to Federal Student Aid is a document put out by the U.S. Department of Education. This manual will give all the information on grants, work study, loans and other topics with regard to federal financial aid.
