Living expense loans...help!

Postby mka5000066 » Wed May 13, 2015 3:35 pm

So I decided to attend a school where I am receiving a full scholarship for tuition, but will need loans for living expenses.

How do I go about doing so? I'm not particularly sure how it all works so any help would be great

I assume this school has a financial aid office? They'll tell you all you need to know.

Will be in this same situation, so if you don't mind me asking...did you get information regarding this from the financial aid office? If so, what did they say?

Follow your school's instructions for getting financial aid. This almost undoubtedly involves filling out FAFSA (and maybe NeedAccess, for some schools). As an admitted student, you should get instructions on what to do.
