Financial Aid

FAFSA Application Process

The starting point for all financial aid is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA application is available on-line, and our Financial Aid Office will gladly assist you if you have any problems with the on-line application process. Once the application is submitted, it takes a day or two for the school to receive the electronic reply from the US Department of Education. The information contained in this document allows the Financial Aid Office to calculate the amount of financial aid each student will receive. Click here for more information and instructions to apply for financial aid.

Upon completion of the application process, the Financial Aid Office will prepare a package of financial aid for you based upon your eligibility and financial need. The office staff can also answer questions about the timing of aid payments, explain eligibility criteria, and advise you about alternative financing sources.
