What is Financial Aid?
Financial aid is any assistance you receive to help pay for tuition, books, and supplies.
This may include:
- Grants – funds that you do not have to repay.
- Loans – money you borrow and are required to repay.
- Work Study – a part time job. (A paycheck every other week.)
- Scholarships – funds that you do not have to repay awarded on the basis of academic or other achievement.
Our goal is to assist you in understanding your financial package and put you on a path to success.
