WHAT IS FINANCIAL AID?
The primary responsibility for meeting college costs lies with the student and parents. Financial aid programs are available to assist students who do not have the financial resources to meet the full cost of attendance. All students are encouraged to apply for financial aid.
Financial aid can be received in the form of grants, scholarships, work-study and/or loans. Grants are gift-aid that does not have to be paid back. Eligibility for all grants is based directly on demonstrated financial need. Scholarships can be received from both internal and external sources. Eligibility for scholarships varies, but most are awarded on the basis of academic ability and/or financial need. Work-Study programs provide jobs for students with financial need.
The amount of aid a student receives is generally based on need, which is the difference between the college's expenses and the amount of money the student and/or the student's family are expected to contribute.
Financial assistance is based primarily on established need and satisfactory academic progress, represented by the minimum cumulative grade point average and hours earned, set by the College. Generally, all financial aid is granted for one year.
