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?

Financial Aid is made available by federal/state agencies and private sources in the form of grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study.  
Financial Aid is intended to help fill the gap between the student's/family's Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and the cost of attending college for the academic year. 
Financial Aid is meant to assist students with classes that are specifically required for their declared educational goal. The basis for such assistance is the belief that students (and the parents of dependent students) have the primary responsibility in meeting educational costs. Educational Goal Information. ​
