 What is Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to assist in removing the cost barriers that may present you from pursuing your educational goals. Most financial aid comes from the state and federal government.  Financial Aid is meant to supplement your family ability to pay for college costs such as tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies and transportation.  Whether or not you receive financial aid will depend on your demonstrated financial need or a special talent or ability that you may have.  Learn more about student eligibility.
Financial Aid comes in the form of grants, loans, student employment, and scholarships to help meet a student's cost of attendance.  There are many factors affecting eligibility for financial aid.  As a result, students should apply for financial aid every year, even if they do not think they will qualify.  Financial aid is available for full time as well as part time students.
