Of the 2013 high school graduates, 47% of them did not complete the FAFSA, rendering them ineligible for their share of federal funds1. Your FAFSA will determine how much you are expected to contribute to the cost of your education, along with the federal aid for which you qualify. 
Many students find the FAFSA daunting. That’s why Tribeca Flashpoint College has a Financial Aid team to walk you through the process. Learn about your options so you don’t leave funding unclaimed.

Before you can find all of your sources of aid, you must complete the FAFSA. The office of federal student aid offers $150+ billion every year to help students pay for higher education2. Keep in mind that you should NEVER pay to complete a FAFSA.

If your financial aid package notes that you qualify for a student loan, it does not mean you must take out that loan. Explore all of the free financial aid options available to you before you take out a loan. If you are considering one, we recommend meeting with OBC’s financial aid department and a financial advisor to help you fully understand the requirements of that loan.
