Financial Aid

Financial aid helps students pay for college. This financial assistance covers educational expenses including tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and transportation.

There are several types of financial aid, including grants and scholarships, work study and loans.  Your financial aid award will likely include several types of aid.  The first thing you need to do is apply! It's absolutely FREE!  You can apply online at www.fafsa.gov or using the new mobile myStudentAid app.

We know financial aid is very complex and the rules and regulations are constantly changing.  We have a great deal of information on this site to help you fund your degree and make educated decisions regarding your financial aid.  You can also access our Financial Aid Guide to learn more!  It will be online soon! Lastly, don't forget about our professional staff members who are available to advise you about the various financial aid opportunities.
