Financial Assistance Available

Financial Aid is money available to assist students with the costs of attending college.  It includes waivers, gift aid in the form of grants and scholarships, and self-help aid in the form of college work-study and student loan programs.

 Financial Aid types can be easily understood when broken down into funding sources.  Financial aid programs are funded by both federal and state governments, the educational institution, and from private sources in the form of scholarships.  The U.S. Department of Education has a Student Guide which provides greater detail on Federal Student Aid and is available online at www.studentaid.ed.gov .
