Now that you have filed the FAFSA and submitted any supporting documents we may have requested, we want to help you understand your Financial Aid Award Package.
Financial Aid is intended to supplement your own resources. The amount and type of award you receive is based on information you provided on the FAFSA as well as the date you filed. We will make every attempt to offer as much financial aid as possible, but it is very rare that all of a student’s financial needs are met entirely through receipt of financial aid. We can work with you to find ways to afford college by looking into alternatives or helping you find ways to reduce your expenses.
We’ve provided the links below as a comprehensive guide to what you need to know about your award.
