Financial Aid and Scholarships
The thought of paying for college can be overwhelming. While there are different types of financial aid to assist with the cost of college, it's important to understand each type of aid, how to find the aid, and how to apply for each type of aid.
FEDERAL STUDENT AID is responsible for managing the student financial assistance programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965. These programs provide loans, work-study funds, and grants to students attending college or career school.
All students applying to college should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). There is NO COST to apply for Federal Student Aid.
