Financial Aid Shopping Sheet
The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet serves as a consumer tool that participating institutions will use to notify students about their financial aid package. It is a standardized form that is designed to simplify the information that prospective students receive about costs and financial aid so that they can easily compare institutions and make informed decisions about where to attend school.
“Paying for College”
Students considering how to pay for college can visit the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s “Paying for College” Website. This site serves as an informative source to assist students in understanding financial options, comparing financial aid plans, and learning how to repay student debt.
Student Account Balances with the University
Trident collects payment from students who have account balances directly with the University. This is different than government or private lending sources and has rules and policies that are different from those programs.
