I’m interested in getting financial aid, but I’m not sure if I qualify.
Applying for financial aid through the completion of an online FAFSA form will take just 30 to 60 minutes and is free of charge. Prospective students may apply in the convenience of their own home or on Campus. Our Financial Aid Team members are available to assist you through this process, so feel free to call with any questions. Also, some sources of financial aid, such as Unsubsidized Direct Stafford and Direct PLUS loans, are available regardless of need. So, even if you don't qualify for need-based aid, you will still have options to fund your education.
It’s been a long time since I was in school. What if I can’t handle it?
We’re proud to say that we have graduated and helped employ thousands of students who started out with the same concern.
