Paying for College

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to you based upon your eligibility. Most financial aid comes from the state and federal government in the form of grants, loans, student employment and scholarships. Please note, to receive financial aid you must meet eligibility criteria and be enrolled in and participating in an eligible degree or certificate program.

The financial aid office also provides information to families about sources of funding, application procedures and advice on financial and budgeting issues. Our Financial Literacy Specialist can share tools to help you manage direct costs related to college (tuition, fees, and books) as well as personal expenses.
