TYPES OF AID

Financial aid is federal, state, institutional and private fund(s) used to assist eligible students in funding their education. Financial aid can be a combination of scholarships, grants, loans and work study. Scholarships and grants are considered “free money” and require no repayment; however, loans and work study are considered self-help aid.  Most loans require repayment when a student becomes enrolled less than half time or graduates. Work study includes part-time employment either on or off campus with an employer who participates in the program.

Make sure you check out our Aggie Assurance Program as well. This program, established in the fall of 2008, aids students with a family income of $60,000 and below by pledging to provide enough scholarships and grants to pay tuition for all eligible students.

Additionally, Graduate Assistantships and Fellowships are available for graduate students.  More information about these programs can be found on the Graduate Assistantship/Fellowship page.
