Student Financial Aid

Financial Aid is intended to help students who might not otherwise be able to attend college. Although the primary responsibility for meeting college costs rests with the student and his/her family, it is recognized that many families have limited resources and are unable to meet the cost of a college education. A variety of financial aid programs (grants, scholarships, and loans) have been established to provide assistance to students with documented financial need.

Financial aid is awarded without regard to the applicant’s race, color, religion, creed, national origin, political affiliation, gender, age, disability, medical condition, veteran status, and other categories protected by federal, state, and local anti-discrimination laws.

Students wishing to receive financial assistance must have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), have transcripts for a high school diploma or its recognized equivalent on file with the Records Office, be enrolled in an eligible program of study (POS) and maintain satisfactory academic progress as outlined in the Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards for Financial Aid Recipients.


Financial aid offers and policies are subject to change by action of the federal and state governments.
