The Dream is Now

 

It’s Time.

We need to fix America’s broken immigration system, giving undocumented youth and their families the chance to earn their citizenship.

We move closer to having Comprehensive Immigration Reform!  I just saw the documentary The Dream is NOW and cried the whole way through.  Take the time to see the documentary and sign the petition.  It is NOW  we need to make our voices heard. Call your Senators and Members of Congress to make sure they know how you feel.

 

Support Immigration Reform & Concepts from The DREAM Act | The Dream is Now.

Government Resources on Going to College

StudentAid.gov is a new website that provides straightforward and easy-to-understand information about planning and paying for college. The site combines content and interactive tools from several ED websites.

StudentAid.gov offers more than just information in an easy-to-read format; it also features videos and infographics to help answer the most frequently asked questions about financial aid.

As a mobile-optimized website, StudentAid.gov is fully accessible on tablets and smartphones. StudentAid.gov’s new look was tested with students, parents and borrowers, and we will continue to make improvements and updates based on your feedback.

Some New Features:

Income-Based Repayment Calculator: If your student loan debt is high but your income is modest, you may qualify for the Income-Based Repayment Plan (IBR). To find out whether you might be eligible to repay your loan under IBR, use our new IBR calculator.

Videos: We’ve developed videos to help make the financial aid process easier to understand. We’ll continue to roll out new videos and update our playlists on the Federal Student Aid YouTube channel.

Infographics: Our infographics will help you understand what steps you need to take to get money for college or career school.

Social Media: In addition to StudentAid.gov, Federal Student Aid has also launched Twitter and Facebook to offer you alternative options to learn about the student aid process.
