Financial Aid

Application

Applying is the first step for financial aid and should be done in January and February. To receive financial aid, students must apply every year through FAFSA. If students are reapplying for financial aid, they can simply select the Pre-fill data process on FAFSA, which will move their last year's data over to the current year's application. Whether a student is eligible for financial aid is primarily dependent on last year's income, investments, and this year's household size. Students can find more information on financial aid on the Office of Student Financial Aid page.
