Financial Aid

Financial aid money is available to help students pay for college. This includes grants, work-study and low-interest loans. Aid can come from the U.S. federal government, the state or the College.


Unlike loans, scholarships never have to be paid back. They are a great way to help pay for college. Performance-based scholarships not only assist with your financial needs, they are a reward for your hard work and distinguish you as an outstanding student.

Scholarships are available from a variety of sources; therefore, you need to be resourceful and initiate the process early each year. Typically, scholarship recipients are selected in the spring (February through May) for the upcoming academic year.
