Federal Student Aid

The office of Federal Student Aid provides grants, loans, and work-study funds for colleges and universities. Each year, over $ 120 billion in federal student aid is provided to help pay for college.

 

Although intercollegiate athletics provide full or partial athletic scholarships at the NCAA Division I and II as well as NAIA levels, NCAA Division III intercollegiate athletics do not provide athletic scholarships. Additionally, those institutions who grant partial athletic scholarships often utilize Federal student aid to determine non-athletic financial aid opportunity.

 

College-bound athletes, who have not been provided full athletic scholarships, will often qualify for student financial assistance through the Federal Student Aid process. The amount of student aid a prospective intercollegiate athlete and his or her family might be able to receive is determined following the completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
