A great option for financing your education
What is financial aid?
Financial aid is any form of assistance that comes from an organized body that assists a student with the costs of attending college. These forms consist of federal, state, institutional and private funds that are used to assist students in funding their education. Scholarships and grants are “free money” that you do not pay back; however, loans are considered as self-help and you are required to pay them back when a student becomes enrolled less than half-time or graduates.
Regardless of your financial status (or your parents), you should consider applying for federal financial aid. The application (FAFSA) is free.
