Scholarships and grants don’t require repayment. They may be academic, merit or need-based.

Government Aid

Government aid is need-based and allows us to administer $31.4 million in aid to approximately 1,000 students annually.


The Federal Work-Study Program provides financial assistance to you through part-time campus employment.


Many kinds of loans are available to you as a student. These require repayment but can make a bachelor’s degree possible.
