Financial Aid Shopping Sheet

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

What is the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet?

The Financial Aid Shopping Sheet (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 Financial Aid Shopping Sheet?

Students who file a FAFSA and indicate on their application for admission that they are using VA education benefits will receive a Financial Aid Shopping Sheet.

What is the difference between the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet 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 Financial Aid Shopping Sheet 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 shopping sheet 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 Jennifer Speer, School Certifying Official, at 615-771-7821.
