Types of Financial Aid

Based on your financial needs, you may require financial assistance to help you with your education-related expenses. Each type of financial aid has a unique set of requirements and your eligibility will be determined using your FAFSA. You will receive the guidance you need throughout this process.

If you have earned a bachelor’s degree, you qualify to apply for the financial aid programs listed below. These programs are designed to supplement your education expenses. When borrowing student loans, please be conscientious of your debt obligations, both personal and student-related.
