Financial Institutions have loss mitigators who will work with you on your delinquent payments. It is usual for a loss mitigator to receive hundreds of hardship letters each and every week so you must make yours stand out and provide the correct information in a way that will catch their attention. The college acceptance letters have come in and on the heels of those come the financial aid award letters. The time has come when you need to get out your magnifying glass and compare letters ~ NOT just the total amount of aid offered but the specific details of each and every aid award offered! This article will highlight some important considerations when comparing these letters. The Financial Aid Office will provide an "award letter" to eligible students.
A central component of the financial aid award letter is a listing of the amounts of any financial aid programs that the student has been offered. When receiving the award letter you should review it very carefully and note the amount of financial aid awarded as well as the terms of each of the individual awards offered. Pay close attention to the Cost of Attendance (COA) and whether the student was awarded to full need or if there is a gap in the funding.
