Grants

One way to pay for college is to apply for grants—money you don’t need to pay back! These need-based federal grants are awarded to students who qualify. First you must complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Scroll up for more information on how to apply.

Scholarships

Scholarships tend to be based on need or merit, and they don’t need to be paid back either! Some students don’t think they can qualify for scholarships and so they don’t apply. However, students are often surprised to find that they do indeed qualify. It certainly doesn’t hurt to apply. Visit FinAid.org for more information.

Loans

We offer several loan programs as well, including direct loans, extended payment periods, and federal work-study programs. Loans must be repaid. Contact our Financial Services Representatives for additional information regarding loan options by calling 866.882.2586.
