Types of Aid

Scholarships

A scholarship is a monetary gift that celebrates an academic achievement, special talent, or act of service. The best thing about a scholarship is that it doesn't need to be repaid.

Grants

Grants are a form of gift aid, meaning you don’t need to repay them. Most grants are based on your level of financial need determined by the results of your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Loans

Many students take out loans to help fund a portion of their college expenses. Loans must be repaid, so be sure to plan your finances carefully and borrow only what you can afford to repay.

Student Employment

More than 1,350 students work on campus to help with their college expenses.
