To OP, are you a US citizen born in Haiti or a Haitian national looking to attend school as an international student? Your aid will be determined by the answer. Also, in the US the Federal govt. still considers a students primary education cost to be the parent's responsibility, so until you turn 24 your parents need to supply financial info for the FAFSA, unless you meet certain criteria. So make sure your parents are willing to supply this info. Also, the FAFSA application period began Jan 1. The earlier you apply the better chance of aid you will get for certain schools, so don't wait until the March deadline. Apply for the summer or fall(or next spring) semesters. Determine how much you want to spend(as much of the aid is often student loans). Work out the finances first and then determine which schools fit your budget.Make sure you qualify for scholarships too.
