To administer a student financial aid program designed to provide financial assistance for students who otherwise would be unable to pursue a post-secondary education.
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.
The first step in applying for aid is the completing of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid ( FAFSA ) for processing. FAFSA forms are available in the Financial Aid Office, which is located in the Emma B. Smith Administration building. The FAFSA can also be filed electronically at www.fafsa.ed.gov . The second step is the mailing of the FAFSA to the central processor. All students NEED to apply for financial aid on an annual basis.
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.

(1) Have financial need as determined by the FAFSA .
