Financial Aid is meant to assist students with educational and cost-of-living expenses. Funds are awarded primarily on the basis of financial need,* and are coordinated to supplement parental support, student employment earnings and savings.

This financial need determines the amount of aid. Every student, family, and financial aid package is different, but the programs available to our students include Pell Grants, Federal Stafford Loans, and Federal Parent PLUS Loans.
