College Financing Plan

In carrying out the Principles of Excellence Executive Order 13607, Williamson College commits to providing the College Financing Plan to veterans and service members before a decision is made to attend.

What is the College Financing Plan?

The College Financing Plan (annotated) is a consumer tool the College uses to notify students, who file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and are using Veterans Affairs Educational Benefits, about their financial aid packages.  It is a standardized form designed to help students make informed decisions about funding their education who have applied to multiple institutions.

Will all veteran students have access to the College Financing Plan?

Students who file a FAFSA and indicate on their application for admission that they are using VA education benefits will receive a College Financing Plan.

What is the difference between the College Financing Plan and the award letter?

Williamson makes every effort to provide each financial aid recipient with an award letter that is clear and complete. Since colleges and universities use many different formats for their award letters, students may find it difficult to compare the financial aid offers from various schools. The College Financing Plan is a standardized form used by schools that have agreed to comply with the VA’s Principles of Excellence. The Principles are designed to help ensure that students can make good educational and financial decisions using a clear, comparative tool that evaluates various financial aid awards. The college financing plan generates figures that are estimates only and all tuition rates and fees are subject to change without notice.

Who do I contact if I have questions?

If you have questions about your military-related education benefits, please contact Cris Majors, Financial Aid, at 615-771-7821.
