How To Apply For Financial Aid

Financial aid is funding that will help you and your family meet college expenses such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, etc.  The basic sources of aid are grants, scholarships, employment, and loans.

You and your parents (if you are dependent) are considered the primary sources of funding for these costs.  Financial aid is intended to fill the gaps where you and your parents might fall short in paying for your education.
