The big question: how can you pay for your education?

Financial aid can ease the burden of costs by offering grants, scholarships, loans, and work study opportunities for qualified students.

You need to be admitted to an eligible degree or certificate program to receive financial aid. All associate degree programs are eligible and some certificate programs are eligible for financial aid. View the current list of Financial Aid Eligible Certificate Programs.

The Financial Aid Office uses standards and procedures developed by the U.S. Department of Education to estimate a fair student and family contribution, determine financial need, and then determine the amount and type of assistance that can be offered to meet your educational expenses.

Watch the tutorial video below on how to find your financial aid award package.
