Financial Aid question for BSN students


I am thinking about applying for a BSN program. My question is: has anyone with a household of 4 w/income of $65,000/year get aid? I can't afford to go to this school without aid or huge loans.


I'd say the best thing to do is to fill out your FASFA (you can do it online) which will give you your EFC (estimated family contribution). Then go and speak with a financial aid counselor at your school.

I get loans with income way higher than that for just my husband and I (we live in an area that has a super-high cost of living and housing). I do not get need-based assistance though. Fill out a FAFSA and speak with the financial aid office at your school to see what is available to you.
