Financial Aid

Financial aid doesn't have to be difficult. At the Office of Financial Aid office, we're here to make the application process easy for you so that you can get the financial aid that you require, and the education that you need to achieve your career goals.

You might be eligible for more financial aid than you think

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine the amount of money you are eligible to receive. You can file beginning October 1. You have to complete the FAFSA each academic year.

Priority Dates

Apply for financial aid every year. If you miss a financial aid priority date, you are still encouraged to file the FAFSA — you will be considered for federal student aid (if eligible), but funds may become limited after priority dates.
