Applying for Financial Aid

Everyone applying for financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each academic year.

Cost of Attendance

Cost of attendance budgets include allowances for tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation and miscellaneous or personal expenses.

Special Circumstances and Financial Aid

Students apply for financial aid by completing the FAFSA using income from two years prior. In some cases, income from two years ago does not accurately reflect the current financial situation of the family and may impact the student’s ability to pay for college. Independent students, or dependent students whose parents were affected by an extenuating situation, are encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office to determine if a Special Circumstance is warranted. For more information about Special Circumstances and Financial Aid, please click here.
