Financial Aid

Roughly 80 percent of our students receive financial aid. To apply for financial aid, complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The information you provide determines whether you qualify for federal and state grants and federal loans based on financial need. 

To qualify for financial aid, you must be a degree-seeking student. Submit all academic transcripts from any schools and colleges you have previously attended and allow time for evaluation. 

Students are strongly encouraged to file the FAFSA as early as possible. If you have questions about the FAFSA or need assistance, visit the Financial Aid Office in the Welcome Center, Building B, Highlands Campus; call 784-7134 or email
