Financial aid is available to remove the cost barriers that may prevent you from pursuing your educational goals. Assistance is available from a variety of programs funded by federal and state grants, student loans, student employment opportunities, as well as scholarships provided by the university and private sources. Students who demonstrate significant financial need may qualify for grant aid while students with less need may obtain low cost loans. Financial need is determined through formulas that assesses the family’s relative financial strength and ability to contribute to meeting the student’s educational costs.
