    Just wondering for those that have already received their FA awards from Colby---how do they look w/o loans?
    For those of us whose student is returning---when might we expect our new FA award?

    The financial aid looks really good without loans! They met my need as indicated on the FASFA (all with grants) and they even went over because they take into consideration other things besides the FAFSA. Hope that helps!
