How to Avoid Scams

  • Remember, Financial Aid applications should be free

  • Scholarships are never guaranteed, therefore watch for the “guaranteed or your money back”.

  • Do not provide sensitive information such as: social security number, credit card, or account numbers.

  • “Millions of dollars in scholarships go unclaimed each year” – The truth is, few scholarships go unclaimed.

  • Do your research. If something sounds too good to be true, it may be a scam.
