Important Brief on FINANCIAL AID 

Financial Aid consists of three major components; grants (scholarships), low-interest loans (usually with extended time limits for payback), and student employment.

The generic formula for financial aid is:

Many high income families believe that they would not qualify for aid and do not file. This may be a mistake. Regardless of income and other assets, parents may qualify for the Federal PLUS loan. This program enables families to borrow up to the full cost of education (less other aid) at very attractive interest rates.
