Tools for Aspiring College Students and Families

College Scorecard
The U.S. Department of Education maintains a tool called College Scorecard that allows you to look up college programs, costs, admissions, postgraduation employment, and more.

The U.S. Department of Education has created a tool called FAFSA4caster to allow you to estimate your federal financial aid eligibility without completing and submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). FAFSA4caster asks a few basic questions about family size, income, and assets to give you a general idea of how much and what types of federal aid you can anticipate.

College Navigator
The National Center for Education Statistics College Navigator allows you to research important data on tuition, fees and costs, retention and graduation rates as well as financial aid among other data points for public, private non-profit and private-for profit institutions that provide certificate, bachelor’s, or advanced degree programs.

Selective Service
All male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, residing in the United States, who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service. Males eighteen years of age and older who are not Registered with the Selective Service will not be eligible to receive federal student aid.
