How Aid is Awarded
Financial assistance is awarded on the basis of "need". Financial need is the difference between the cost of attending school and the student/family’s ability to contribute to educational expenses. The University expects that the student his/her parents and spouse will contribute to the fullest from income and assets in meeting educational expenses.
To determine what the family is expected to contribute‚ the University uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Renewal FAFSA.
What is Financial Aid?
