Financial Aid Award
Several factors determine the amount and type of financial aid you are offered.
- Your financial need as determined by FAFSA
- Your williingness to accept various types of aid
- Availability of funds
A financial aid award consists of gift aid (such as scholarships and grants which do not have to be repaid) and self-help aid (such as student loans and work study which must be borrowed or earned).
What is a FAFSA? Submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the starting point for accessing most forms of federal and state aid. Click here to go to the application Web site. Remember to use the free government website.
