Apply for Financial Aid

Get help paying for college tuition and other college fees. To apply for financial aid, you’ll need to first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This will determine your eligibility for federal and state grants and some scholarships. You’ll receive an award letter via email within about a week of submitting your application.

 

How we determine your financial aid amount

The Financial Aid Office estimates your yearly cost for college to determine how much financial aid you may receive. We use your housing type as reported on your FAFSA and your residency status as determined by the Office of Admissions to estimate your costs for tuition, room, board, fees, books, supplies and miscellaneous expenses. This estimate is based on full-time attendance for the fall and spring semesters. Your actual college costs may be more or less depending on how many credits you take, your housing expenses and other factors.

 

Calculate how much financial aid you will receive

Our Net Price Calculator can help you estimate how much you’re likely to receive in financial assistance. It only takes a few minutes — you’ll need to have an idea of your family's income and assets.
