REMEMBER TO DO YOUR FAFSA!  IT IS REQUIRED EACH YEAR.  YOU CAN COMPLETE YOUR 2014-2015 FAFSA AT beginning January 1, 2014.    Be sure to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool within the FAFSA application if your taxes have been filed electronically for at least a week and at least 3 weeks for paper filings.  This will insure the information is properly entered.

You can still do your FAFSA after this date and be considered for the Federal Pell Grant and Direct Stafford Loans.

Welcome to the Financial Aid and Scholarship web site! Within these web pages you will find information about what financial aid is, how you apply for it, the types of financial aid, policies and regulations governing financial aid, scholarship information, and the list goes on. As Federal Regulations change, we also have to make changes. We will make every effort to keep this information up-to-date and useful as well as clearly presented.

We encourage all students to apply for financial aid. Do you know that more than 80 percent of our students receive some sort of scholarship and/or financial aid? Even if you do not think you will qualify, apply anyway. Wouldn’t it be a nice surprise if you did qualify?

To apply for financial aid, simply click on the link above for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) found at the top of this page. This is your first step in the process. You should also apply for our scholarships which have a separate application. There might be one with your name on it!
