Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to those who qualify. If educational expenses are greater than the family’s ability to pay, as determined by a Congressionally-defined formula, a student may qualify for need-based financial assistance. The primary responsibility for financing a college education rests with parents and students, and federal financial aid is provided to supplement the total family contribution and is awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need. However, some federal aid (i.e. Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loans and Parent PLUS Loans) may be used to replace the students Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as calculated by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
