Financial Aid

An important step in the college planning process is determining how to pay for your education.  Remember that the costs of going to college include not just the direct costs of tuition, fees, room, and board, but also indirect costs such as books, transportation, and miscellaneous expenses for clothing, laundry, entertainment, and recreation.
You may be eligible for many different types of aid including...
Scholarships: Non-repayable awards based on merit or merit plus need
Grants: Non-repayable awards based on need
Loans: Educational loans are available through private lending institutions, colleges, and the federal government.  Federal student loans have low interest rates with payments deferred while the student is enrolled in school.  Loans must be repaid.
Work-study Programs: Jobs that allow students to earn money towards their expenses while they are enrolled in school.
