Types of Aid

Financial aid is federal, state, institutional and private fund(s) used to assist eligible students in funding their education. Financial aid can be a combination of scholarships, grants, loans and work study. Scholarships and grants are considered “free money” and require no repayment; however, loans and work study are considered self-help aid. Most loans require repayment when a student becomes enrolled less than half time or graduates. Work study includes part-time employment either on- or off- campus with an employer who participates in the program.

More detailed information about each award type can be found by viewing their respective tabs under this section.
