Sample text

Don’t touch retirement accounts. As long as the money stays in a retirement account, the vast majority of schools aren’t going to care how much you’ve saved. You could have $5 million stockpiled in retirement accounts, and it wouldn’t hurt your chances for financial aid. Some private colleges, however, may factor in your retirement accounts when calculating financial need. Any college or university, however, will take note if you tap into your retirement nest egg. Withdrawals from retirement accounts are considered income.

Department of Education’s National Postsecondary Student Aid Study should be illuminating. In the study, the federal statisticians broke down the percentage of undergraduates receiving financial aid into six different income categories—the highest category contained families making at least $100,000, and the lowest were families earning less than $20,000. 30 PART I • CAPTURING FINANCIAL AID 31 More than 76% of the poorest families received federal assistance, while 39% of the wealthiest parents did.

That’s got to be what happened when an elite West Coast school reeled in an exceptional student who just happened to be sitting on a $500,000 trust fund. A financial aid administrator could have run the numbers any way he wanted, but this teenager still wouldn’t have qualified for need-based aid. But surprise, surprise, the private university, ignoring the trust fund, awarded him a yearly $30,000 aid package. I mention this story not to make you more cynical about the financial aid process, but to alert you to one of the many ways that you can boost your chances of receiving more than crumbs from your favorite school.
