Types of Aid

Financial Aid is determined based on the completion of a financial aid application, the student's Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and a student's career. Financial aid such as scholarships and private loans are accessible by all students, but awards such as federal and state grants and loans can only be utilized by those who qualify.
