College Financial Aid Information

Scam Alert

In the autumn, students (especially high school seniors) are looking for scholarships and preparing to apply for other types of financial aid. Please remind your students that the government WILL NOT CALL THEM to offer them grants.

We at the U.S. Department of Education occasionally hear from students who have been scammed by telemarketers who contact them, tell them they have won a government grant, and ask for their bank account information. Many students are savvy enough to realize the call must be a scam, but some are taken in.

Help your students avoid such scams by distributing "Don't Get Scammed on Your Way to College," available at

...paying for college is possible

determine their current eligibility for federal student aid.
 Counselors should encourage students to check out

MyFSA is an online account that provides students with access to
 college and scholarship searches, career and self-assessment tools,
and other valuable resources regarding college and financial aid.
Students can learn about MyFSA's various functions,
