General Financial Aid Information
Financial aid is designed to supplement the amount students and their families are expected to contribute to meet the cost of attending college. Sources and amounts of financial aid funding vary, and each student’s application for financial aid is individually reviewed to determine eligibility. Eligibility is calculated by mathematical formulas which determine financial need, and the amount is the difference between the total cost of attending college for one year and the contribution of the student and their family. Amounts and eligibility are not randomly selected.
Each student applies for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. Financial assistance is awarded for one academic year at a time. The amount and type of aid awarded is dependent upon student household information calculated by a formula established by the Department of Education. Since funds for many programs are limited, early application is very important, preferably by April 15 of each year.
Who can apply?
You and your family have the primary responsibility for paying for your education, but financial aid programs may be available where your family’s resources end. Financial aid comes in the forms of grants, work‑study and loans. Anyone can apply for financial aid. Since the process is free, and everyone has eligibility for loans, why not apply and find out for what you may be eligible?
When to apply?
Completed FAFSA forms may be submitted after January 1 before the school year will begin. It is recommended that you file your federal income tax return before completing the FAFSA. The priority deadline for applying for financial aid is April 15 for the next school year. Remember, you must apply separately for each year.
