There are essentially two types of financial assistance: need-based, which is determined by personal and/or family income levels, and merit scholarships, based on special achievements of the student rather than income.
Students applying for need-based financial assistance from federal, state, or institutional sources must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the federal government. Submitting this form qualifies students for the widest range of financial assistance. After your FAFSA is processed, you will receive your Student Aid Report (SAR). Your SAR must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office. Depending on the eligibility requirements for some financial assistance, additional information may be required.
It is very important that all students seeking financial assistance contact the Financial Aid office early, and submit all the necessary forms and information before the required deadlines. The priority deadline for all required documents is March 1st of the upcoming academic year. Missing the deadline can seriously affect eligibility for financial assistance.
Financial aid is NOT automatically renewed, and students receiving financial aid MUST re-apply each year in order to be considered for assistance.
