Financial Aid Available
Financial aid helps you meet the difference between what you can reasonably be expected to pay and what it will cost you to go to college. It may be in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, work-study jobs, or a combination of any of these programs.
Grants are generally awarded based on financial need and require no repayment.
A scholarship is a financial award given to a student on the basis of academic achievement, merit, and/or financial need. Scholarships usually do not have to be repaid.
Loans must be repaid at a future date, with interest, usually following graduation or when you cease to be enrolled at least half-time. The Federal Direct Student Loan Program or "Direct Loans" are provided by the US government directly to students and their parents.
The Work study program is a form of need-based federal financial aid. The program encourages community service work and work related to the student’s course of study.
