The Financial Aid Office assists students by awarding financial aid to help pay for educational expenses.  Financial aid is available from federal, state, Institutional and private resources.  There are four primary types of financial aid programs.

  • Grants – Gift aid that is awarded based on demonstrated financial need. Grants do not have to be repaid.
  • Loans – Funds that are borrowed to help pay for educational expenses. Loans must be repaid, usually with interest.
  • Employment – Funds that can be earned by working in exchange for wages. Employment earnings do not have to be repaid.
