Financial Aid
As a parent or guardian, you are probably wondering about the best way to pay for your child’s education. The good news is there are many options available for financial assistance, and more than 90 percent of students here make use of these resources to meet their obligations. To be eligible for any form of financial aid, including work-study and most university-funded scholarships, your child will first need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student AidThe Office of Financial Aid can help you through this process. Our counselors work with you and your child to develop a package of resources by combining grants, scholarships, loans, and on-campus jobs. A college education is one of the most important investments you can make in your child’s future.
