Financial Aid

Financial Aid

Financial aid can include scholarships, loans and grants. When you apply for financial aid through the FAFSA, you are automatically considered for loans and grants so you don't need to apply for them separately. You may also apply for scholarships along with your financial aid or for scholarships only.

Please check the deadlines for Financial Aid

2017-2018 FAFSA available now

Starting with the 2017-2018 FAFSA, tax information from two years prior will be requested – for example, the 2015 tax return information will be used to complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA. Because students and families will be able to use tax information from previously completed returns, the 2017-2018 FAFSA became available on October 1, 2016.
