Scholarship & Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid provides assistance to students in securing the financial means to pursue higher education. Our goal is to educate students about their financial rights and responsibilities to enable them to make informed decisions about their educational funding and to encourage responsible borrowing and repayment practices.

Our staff strives to provide students with accurate, up-to-date information about financial options in accordance with federal regulations and institutional policies. We provide quality, timely and individual attention and will assist our students in a friendly, courteous and understanding manner.

Our office supports the school's goal of enrolling and educating a talented, dynamic and diverse student body and will serve as a resource to present, past and future students.
