Financial aid is funding that helps you and your family pay for college. There are multiple forms of financial aid including grants, scholarships, tuition assistance, work-study and student loans. In order to determine funding eligibility you must, no matter your income, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Our financial aid staff are always available to answer your questions and help you understand your aid options, determine the types of aid you may be eligible to receive and guide you through the entire financial aid process.
