Have questions about financial aid?  Take advantage of FATV.  It contains a comprehensive library of short videos pertinent to financial aid topics. The videos address questions from students and parents via a dedicated on-line portal.  It replaces the need to spend time searching for answers and answers are supplemented with short videos for more in-depth explanations.​


Grants

Grants are free money, based on eligible enrollment and financial need as determined partly through the FAFSA and TAP application processes.

 

 





Loans 

Loan programs can be very helpful, but don't request more than you really need. Most federal student loans are awarded based on eligible enrollment and financial need as determined through the FAFSA application process. Loans must be repaid in accordance with a variety of rules and regulations.

Work Study 

Work-study is part-time work, mostly on campus, awarded based on eligible enrollment and financial need as determined through the FAFSA application process. Usually, work-study funding is available only for early applicants.

 



Scholarships

 

Scholarships are free money based primarily on academic merit and eligible enrollment. Many also have a financial need requirement. These are not awarded through our office. See our scholarships resource page for details
