Financial Aid

Financial Aid Overview

We understand that your education is an investment in yourself, your future, your goals and your dreams.

During our admissions process each applicant will have an individual meeting with a Financial Aid Administrator to assist you in trying to make those goals and dreams a reality. We also understand that the financial aid process can be confusing and stressful. As part of this meeting, the Financial Aid Administrator will go over documentation, explore Financial Aid options that you may qualify for and review an estimated award package for each applicant.

Frequently Asked Financial Aid Questions

Q. How do I apply for financial aid?
A. You must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. You can complete the FAFSA on-line at The FAFSA form is the only form required for applying for financial aid.

Q. When do I meet with a Financial Aid Administrator?
A. The first step is to meet with an Admissions Representative. Once, you have completed the application process then the next step is meeting individually with a Financial Aid Administrator.

Q. Is financial aid free money?
A. Financial Aid (if you qualify) may consist of both free money in the form of grants and/or money that must be paid back in the form of loans. Student loans are money that you borrow and must be paid back but you do not start making payments until six months after you graduate or leave school. You have up to 10 years to pay back your student loans. If you would like to pay off sooner than the 10 years there is no penalty. Federal Stafford Student Loans do NOT require a credit check.

Q. Why do I have to involve my parent when applying for financial aid?
A. As part of the federal requirement passed by congress a student may be considered dependent or independent by answering all the questions in step 3 of the FAFSA form. If all the answers in step 3 are answered “no” then parent information must be obtained on the FAFSA form. A parent must also be in attendance for the financial aid appointment.
