    You don't get money from the FAFSA - its the schools that use the FAFSA to determine how much aid you are eligible for. Once you get accepted to a school they send you a financial "package" letting you know. With loans you and your dad can borrow money up to the total cost of attendance - which is quite high usually. Even our city college has a cost of attendance of $18,000. so if you qualify for a $5500 student loan say, your dad can additionally borrow the rest under a parent loan.

    You may be offered some grant money, but not a lot. Mainly loans as the other person stated.
