Financial Aid Resources

There are many resources to help you determine the types of financial aid for which you qualify, how much you should borrow, and how to become eligible. You are also welcome to contact the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships with any questions about financial aid.

FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid): Filing the FAFSA is required for all students who wish to receive federal grants, loans, or work study. The application guides students through a series of questions about the student’s dependency status, student finances, parent finances, and school selection. Once the information is complete and the FAFSA is filed, the student’s financial need is determined, allowing the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships to award their aid. The Federal Student Aid website is the U.S. Department of Education’s central website for federal student aid. Log in with your FSA ID to complete your FAFSA, view your loan borrowing history, complete Entrance Counseling, sign a Master Promissory Note, or complete the PLUS loan application process. This website also provides resources for repaying student loans, repayment plans and calculators, deferring loans, and loan forgiveness.
