Financial aid is any assistance made available to a family to help them with educational costs.
The primary forms of aid are:
Student Employment and Federal Work-Study
Veterans Benefits and Yellow Ribbon Program
Scholarships are awarded by the College and outside agencies based on a student's merit. Other forms of aid, such as grants, loans, and student employment, are generally awarded to a family based on their demonstrated financial need. Financial need is determined by calculating how much a family can contribute to education based on their income and assets.
