Financial Aid and Veterans Services Office Mission

Our Mission is to increase the number of students receiving financial assistance, ​which will contribute to the successful completion of their academic goals.​  

What is Financial Aid?

Federal and State Financial Aid is designed to assist students overcome financial barriers to successfully complete their educational goal and is made available by federal/state/private agencies in the form of grants, scholarships, loans, and federal work study. Financial Aid is also limited to only supporting classes specifically required for a student’s educational goal. Financial Aid is also designed to strictly be used for assisting students educational cost to attend college and is intended to help fill the gap between the students/family’s expected family contribution (EFC) and the cost of attending college.
Financial Aid is not a means of income, yet should be viewed as a resource to overcome financial barriers from achieving higher education.
