Here are 4 tips for helping you evaluate your financial aid options:
1. Put the numbers down on paper. Include tuition, extra expenses like travel, any fees, and room & board. Room & board costs in particular can vary greatly from one college to another, so be sure to factor this in.
2. Ask yourself, what do you value? Each college is different. At Le Moyne we are fortunate to be part of a community that’s warm and welcoming, with faculty, staff, and students who go above and beyond to help one another succeed. This culture is embedded in all that we do. Our emphasis on small class size, personal attention, open minds, and open hearts are important hallmarks of our Jesuit college on the ‘Heights.’
3. Read the fine print. Make sure to thoroughly read and understand your financial aid offers. Beyond numbers on a page, we recommend considering (1) requirements to maintain aid (2) flexibility to chart your own course in college and beyond.
4. Call us! Our goal is to ensure that all students and families receive the support they need to attend the college of their choice. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call our Financial Aid Office at (315) 445-4400. Our experienced Financial Aid staff members will help you weigh your options.
