What is Financial Aid?

Financial Aid is made available by federal and state governments and private sources in the form of grants, scholarships, loans and Work-Study.

The basis for such assistance is the belief that students (and the parents of dependent students) have the primary responsibility in meeting educational costs.

Financial Aid is intended to help fill the gap between the student / families EFC (Expected Family Contribution) and the cost of attending college for the academic year.

The Mission of the Financial Aid Office is to increase the number of students receiving financial assistance, which will contribute to the successful completion of their academic goals.
