Financial aid

Grants, work-study, and federal student loans can all be part of your financial aid package

Your financial aid package helps cover costs such as tuition and fees, room and board, and books and supplies. Aid is available to families from a variety of income levels.

The first step to receiving any type of financial aid is to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®).
