How do I pay for a postsecondary education?

If you are not sure how to pay for college, you can fund your studies with merit or need-based financial aid. Merit aid can be awarded based on your academic performance, athletic participation, artistic ability, or chosen program of study. Need-based aid is offered based on income level and overall financial status. There are several varieties of merit and need-based aid, including grants, scholarships, student loans, and work-study programs.
