    The articles I chose to support my topic Financial aid barriers for college student gives background information on how students are not aware of how to access financial aid, and not properly informed of the important steps needed in order to receive financial aid for example the time Fasfa supposed to be submitted, how the college will calculate their family income, and the lack of resources they have available to understand college life in general. The lack of information prevent students from talking full advantage of their learning experiences, which will cause them to lose out on opportunities that could advance the student in the future. The article focus on students and other stressors in everyday life for example student work schedules and taking care of their family. These issues are important because it adds to the college experience with the student that can be an addition stressor along with dealing with the stress of financial aid.
