She needs to talk to her college financial aid officer.  This is the kind of thing that requires advance planning.  Knowing she would need aid, she should have filed the FAFSA application for Federal StudentAid, way back last winter.  That aid is not based on need, but you have to follow the rules to apply.  It’s so late now that the best advice I can give is to talk to the college financial aid office.
