Not eligible for need based grants?

Postby corporatelaw87 » Mon May 17, 2010 9:26 pm

So I was on a couple of schools sites and they said transfers are not eligible for need based financial aid grants. Does that include FAFSA? If so, how do people afford to transfer?

The FAFSA is the form for federal loans eligibility. Need-based grants are like scholarships, only for people who have no money. You pay back a loan, a grant is like a gift. You can still take out the loan, but the school won't be granting you a dime.
