Types of Aid

Financial aid is money that helps you pay for college. Financial aid can be a combination of scholarships, grants, loans and work study.

  • Scholarships and grants are “free money” that you do not need to repay.
  • Loans need to be paid back when you enroll less than half-time or you graduate.
  • A part-time job can also help you pay for school and living expenses.

By submitting a financial aid application and a scholarship application, you are reviewed for all the types of financial aid that you are eligible for. 
Remember: each student is eligible for different kinds of financial aid. The types of financial aid you are offered is based on the data provided on your financial aid and/or scholarship application. Financial aid is either need-based or non-need based. Financial need, and need-based aid eligibility, is determined by subtracting the EFC from the COA. Students are not allowed to receive aid that exceeds their Cost of Attendance.

    Cost of Attendance (COA)
-   Expected Family Contribution (EFC)
=  Financial Need

Federal Pell Grants are awarded to all eligible undergraduate students who complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

To be eligible for the Federal Pell Grant, you must meet all of the following requirements;
  • You have not already earned a bachelor’s degree
  • You must have a qualifying Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the FAFSA.
  • Recipients must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress.
  • Students are limited to receive the equivalent of twelve semesters at full-time enrollment in Pell Grant

The Federal Direct Unsubsidized loan is a federal loan that can be used to help pay college costs. You are responsible for paying the interest on the loan. If you choose not to pay the interest while you are in school, your interest will accrue and be capitalized; this means your interest will be added to the principal amount of your loan.

After you graduate, leave school, or drop below half-time enrollment, you will have a six-month grace period before you are required to begin repaying your loan. During this period, you'll receive repayment information from your loan servicer, and you'll be notified of your first payment due date.
