Financial Aid

Financial Aid Checklist

Financial aid may come from sources such as the government (state and federal), the college you attend, and private organizations. Monies may be in the form of grants, scholarships, work-study, or loans. Financial aid is meant for use at 2 and 4-year colleges, trade or career schools, and graduate school. 

Even if you don't think you will qualify for financial aid, several loans, grants, and scholarships require that you complete a FAFSA or Dream Act Application.
