Christian College education affordable

WILMORE, KY—The February issue of Kentucky Living magazine featured Asbury College freshman and Lexington native Will Sallee. In the article, Will’s father said that the family planned to send Will to a state university. However, after discovering student loan applications and financial aid options, the Sallees were able to send Will to Asbury College. The decision his father describes as “a good fit” for Will who is a now a member of the Eagle swimming and diving team.

Will swam four years in high school and desired to continue swimming at the collegiate level. As his father says in the article, “those opportunities were much greater for him at a smaller, private college.” At the end of the month, Will competes with nine of his teammates at nationals.

Kentucky Living author Kathy Witt describes the FASFA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) that all students must complete. This application covers federal and state grants, scholarships and work-study programs. Asbury College also offers numerous merit-based, academic and athletic scholarships, and a church match program.

As the Sallees found out, a private, Christian college education is affordable if families explore all of the financial aid possibilities available. Bill Sallee says in the Kentucky Living article, “The loan process also enabled Will to consider going to a Christian college. It was another benefit we found by going through the financial aid process.”
