Federal Financial Aid
To apply for Federal Financial Aid, which may include grants, scholarships, and loans, fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submit all necessary documentation. You will then work with your home campus Financial Aid Office to learn what aid is available to you and to accept or deny the aid.
Your student success coach is happy to connect you with resources available through your campus and outside organizations to explore scholarship opportunities. Students are also strongly encouraged to seek out scholarship opportunities on their own and connect with their employers regarding reimbursement possibilities.
Developing and following a budget can be tough! It is important to remember that a budget can be flexible and should evolve over time.
