We're here to help

The Office of Financial Aid is open from 8 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday. We're located on the first floor of Cardinal Farrell Hall. #1 on the campus map. 

We strive to meet the needs and concerns of our students on an individual basis. Financial Aid is intended to supplement, not replace, family resources.

The primary source of funding rests with both federal and state governments; therefore, government regulations determine a student's eligibility. We are required to comply with updated federal, state, and institutional regulations and policies.

What is financial aid?

Federal, state, institutional, and private funds are used to assist eligible students in funding their education. Financial aid can be a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, waivers, and student employment. Scholarships and grants are considered “free money” that the student is not required to repay; however, loans and student employment are considered self-help aid. Most loans require repayment when a student becomes enrolled less than half-time or graduates. Student employment includes both work-study positions and part-time employment positions, either on- or off-campus.
