Money tips for students: Play your cards right Print E-mail

As students become more responsible for paying their own bills, they need to be aware of the types of cards available, according to the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).

Debit cards are tied to a bank account. When someone uses a debit card, the money is automatically deducted from the account. Most colleges issue a type of debit card to students that can be used to buy books, supplies and meals. In that case, the card is not tied to a bank account but is preloaded with funds deposited each semester or quarter.

Filing FAFSA early gives students better chance at grants Print E-mail

Kentucky students planning to attend an in-state college or university beginning in fall 2014 should file the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after Jan. 1. Filing early increases a student’s chance of receiving a state need-based grant administered by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA). The FAFSA is available at www.fafsa.gov.

A student attending a college or university in Kentucky may qualify for a College Access Program (CAP) Grant. To qualify, a student must show financial need and be enrolled at least half-time toward an associate’s or bachelor’s degree.

A student attending a Kentucky private college or university may qualify for a Kentucky Tuition Grant (KTG) in addition to a CAP Grant. To qualify for KTG, a student must show financial need and be enrolled full-time.

Funding for CAP and KTG is limited, with awards made on a first-come, first-served basis. Award amounts will be set in February.

For more information about CAP and KTG, view the KHEAA-administered programs under the Paying for College section on www.kheaa.com or email grants@kheaa.com.

To learn how to plan and prepare for higher education, go to www.gotocollege.ky.gov. For more information about Kentucky scholarships and grants, visit www.kheaa.com; write KHEAA, P.O. Box 798, Frankfort, KY 40602; or call (800) 928-8926, ext. 6-7372.
