Still Need Funding?
We’ll Help You Find It

Our Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid will work withyou to build a financial aid offer that could include oneor more of the following options:

Gift Aid

Gift aid includes scholarships and grants – money for college that doesn’t need to be repaid. This kind of aid can be merit-based or need-based and comes from a variety of sources.

Self-Help Aid

Student self-help options includes Federal Work-Study and Federal Direct Student Loans. Students who accept and use self-help options are committing to either working while attending school and/or repaying loans borrowed as a student to supplement other financial aid and savings to pay for educational expenses.

Self-help aid includes loans, which require repayment over a set amount of time and usually with interest. Most federal loans have a six-month grace period, giving you time to land a job after graduation before your first payment is due. And if you’re worried about debt, LendEDU.com reports that our students who use loans graduate with nearly 10% less debt than the national average.

Self-help aid also includes Federal Work-Study, a financial aid program that provides part-time jobs for students who are determined eligible by the FAFSA.The program encourages community service work and work related to your course of study.
