If you get four years of college paid for because your parent works at a college are you still eligible for financial aid if you need it for living expenses and the cost of books?
Yes, you can. Part of determining eligibility for financial aid is your "cost of attendance" (COA). The COA includes tuition, books, fees, and estimated living expenses. Your total financial aid, including the free tuition you're getting from the school can't exceed the COA. You can receive other aid up to the unmet cost. This will probably be in the form of student loans or work-study depending on your financial situation. The financial aid office can tell you what your options are.
If your husband signs FAFSA form for your daughter does this make him a cosigner for the financial aid?
Each college and university that is eligible to award financial aid has a code particular to that specific school. This code is different from that of the college code.

Telephone or talk with a financial aid counselor in person.

If you are eligible for financial aid, your school will offer it to you. Generally, the easiest way to find out if you're eligible is to talk to the community college's financial aid office.
It depends on your school's financial aid policy, but an EFC of zero will most likely get you the maximum need-based financial aid in terms of grants. A family unable to contribute to their child's college expenses may not have the credit to cosign a student loan, but it may not be necessary since you will likely qualify for enough grants to cover expenses. Merit-based financial aid is a different story entirely, but you may…
EFC stands for Expected Family Contribution. The is an index number that college financial aid staff use to figure out how much financial aid you are eligible to receive if you go to their school. Your EFC is figured out after you report information about your specific situation on the FAFSA. It is based on a formula established by law. This formula considers your family’s taxed and untaxed income, assets, benefits, family size, and number…
There are many types of college financial aid programs ranging from student loans, grants to scholarships. I think it would save you a lot of time if you first sought help from the college you are going to attend. The financial aid counselors will help you determine what programs you would most be eligible for and most likely receive.
