Financial Aid

The primary purpose of student financial aid is to provide financial assistance to students who would otherwise be unable to pursue a post-secondary education. The basis of financial aid programs is that the main responsibility for meeting college costs lies with the family. Financial aid programs are available to assist students and families who do not have the financial resources to meet the full cost of attendance. Here is a nice article on College Financial Aid.

 There are many types of financial aid available to students such as:

  • Work-Study Jobs- based on financial need
