Financial Aid

The purpose of student financial aid is to provide financial assistance to students who, without such aid, would be unable to attend college.  Although it is expected that students and parents will make a maximum effort to meet the cost of education, financial aid is available to fill the gap between family resources and the annual educational expenses.  Financial aid is intended to supplement the family’s existing income/financial resources and should not be depended upon as the sole means of income to support other non-educational expenses. Financial aid is available from various sources

Financial Aid

Financial Aid is monies made available by federal and state governments and private sources in the form of grants, loans, fee waivers, scholarships, and part-time employment. These monies are available to make it possible for students to continue their education beyond high school, even if they and their family cannot meet the full costs of the postsecondary school they choose to attend. The basis for such assistance is the belief that students (and their parents) have the primary responsibility for meeting their educational costs.
