Federal Shopping Sheet

The Federal Shopping Sheet is a standardized financial aid form for all colleges and universities (provided by the U.S. Department of Education) to assist in making aid and cost comparisons for multiple schools simple and easy to read. 

The form is available to all undergraduate students and all military students (regardless of degree level) once you have been accepted and have a package with a cost of attendance and aid for a particular academic year. You will find your personal form in your ASIST account (Financial Aid > Award for Aid Year > Award Overview > Federal Shopping Sheet).
