The Financial Aid Office staff are here to assist you with all your questions regarding the student financial aid process. We encourage all students to apply for financial aid, as a variety of assistance may be available. The Financial Aid Office does not want anyone to be deprived of an education due to a lack of financial resources.

Applying for financial aid can be a complex and confusing process. Financial aid workshops are available for students who need help! With each workshop, financial aid staff are available to help you through the application.
