Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid Services

Our mission is to provide accurate and current information regarding the financial aid process and programs, and to assist students in understanding and obtaining appropriate aid for which they are eligible ‐‐‐ in an efficient and student‐friendly manner.

Have a question about your financial aid? Create a support ticket through our Fresh Service Portal. Click here for instructions on how to submit a ticket. Your inquiry will be automatically directed to the appropriate staff so that we can resolve your issue as quickly as possible. Financial Aid counseling is also available via Navigate appointments with a Financial Aid representative.

Grants

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

Work-study

Work-study is part-time work, mostly on campus, awarded based on eligible enrollment.

Scholarship

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.

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.

Tuition/Bursar

This site will explain tuition and fees cost, the billing process, payment options, refunds and frequently asked questions.
