Financial Aid

Financial Aid for post-secondary education is based on a student’s financial need.  This need is determined through information provided by the student’s family on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and is based on federal tax information.  The FAFSA form is completed once, on line, and the results are forwarded to the schools to which a student has applied.  Financial aid is awarded directly from the institution
