  • New Tools for Understanding Financial Aid

    Attorney General Maura Healy recently launched a campaign to  help  students and families more easily understand financial aid award letters.  AG Healey’s campaign – located at mass.gov/ago/studentawardletter – includes helpful graphics, sample forms, tips, and resources online to help students and families understand and compare financial aid award letters and determine the amount of money they’ll need to pay for college. While acceptance letters are typically straightforward, the financial aid award letters can be confusing, hard to compare, and vary greatly from school to school. Too often, the AG’s Office hears that students did not realize how much they would owe until after finishing school.  Borrowers with student loan problems are encouraged to file a Student Loan Request for Assistance to get help.  Students and parents with questions or concerns about financial aid award letters should call the Student Loan Assistance Unit’s hotline at 1-888-830-6277 or fill out an Award Letter Help Request.

  • Selective Service

    ATTENTION ALL 17 AND 18 YEAR OLD STUDENTS!  Just a reminder that when you turn 18, the law says that you have to register with Selective Service at www.sss.gov or get a registration card at your local post office.   It’s your civic responsibility and keeps you eligible for student loans, job training, government jobs, and driver’s licenses in most states.  You can submit your registration earlier than your 18th birthday also.  If you have any questions regarding registration, see your guidance counselor.  Thank you.
