Financial assistance is provided through many forms. Through a process of careful planning and preparation, higher education can be an obtainable goal. Each student must take the responsibility to review his or her goals, evaluate their family’s financial situation and determine a course of action.
Fortunately students do not have to do this entire process alone. The Office of Financial Aid is here to help you!
