Qualifying for financial aid depends on a number of factors: your family's financial need, your academic profile, and the availability of University funds.* The only way to know if you will be eligible for grants, federal work-study, and loans is to apply for aid. Regardless of your family's income and assets, many options are available to help pay educational expenses. Private educational loans and external scholarships may provide additional financial support.
To apply for financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the College Scholarship Service's Financial Aid PROFILE. Applying by the February 15th priority filing deadline will ensure that you are considered for the maximum funding available based on your financial need. Once all of your information has been submitted and reviewed by the Student Financial Services office, a financial aid award will be created for you, outlining the funding that you are eligible to receive for the academic year. Provided we have received all the necessary application materials, you will receive your financial aid award at the same time as your admission decision.
* In order to be eligible for need-based financial aid, a student must be a U.S. citizen or a Permanent Resident. Information for international students is available here.
