School wants a doctor’s note

Parents should not have to pay the entire cost of a child’s college education. However, if you or your child has a disability, you will need to pay the full cost of a college education.

This is because the government requires that you pay a portion of the cost of your child’s education to ensure that the child is receiving a free education and does not have to take out loans.

The amount of money you will need to pay depends on the student’s disability.

For example, if your child has a disability that is not considered a high-cost disability, your child will receive about $2,500 of financial aid to cover the cost of college.

If your child has a high-cost disability, you will need to contribute about $20,000 of financial aid to cover the entire cost of the child’s college education.

The amount of financial aid needed depends on the type of disability.

For example, a student with a severe learning disability or blindness will need to pay $33,000 of financial aid to cover the full cost of their college education.

If your child has a disability that is considered a moderate to high-cost disability, you may be able to get a $6,000 to $12,000 of financial aid to help cover the full cost of your child’s college education.

How to apply for financial aid?

You can apply for federal aid, such as Direct Subsidized Loans and Perkins Loans, or you can apply for private aid, such as Stafford Loans, Federal Family Education Loan, or Veterans Affairs Loan.

If your child has a disability, you can apply for federal aid to help cover the full cost of their college education.
