College Students

Financial Aid Toolkit From the Education Department
  • Federal Student Aid (FSA), an office of the U.S. Department of Education, consolidates student aid resources into a searchable online database intended for use by organizations and individuals who interact with students and families on making financial preparations for postsecondary education. Financial literacy is a critical component of every student’s education, whether he or she is making the decision about where to go to college and how to pay for it, or deciding whether to enter the workforce.
