Financial Aid

We are committed to using all possible resources to put together a package that makes sense for you — 90%  of our undergrads receive some form of Financial Aid. There are only two steps to apply for financial aid:

  • Apply for Enrollment
  • Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Completing the FAFSA requires both time and access to income tax returns. Our staff is available to guide you through that process. Once the FAFSA is complete, your side of the process is done! We will assemble an individualized aid package for you.
