Welcome to Financial Aid
Our goal is to assist you in bridging the gap between your own resources and the cost of attending college. We offer assistance with completing applications and providing information about the requirements of the various financial aid programs. Financial aid consists of federal grants, work-study, state grants, fee waivers, and outside scholarships.
2024-2025 Financial Aid Updates
