Financial Aid

Financial Aid

With rising costs of college, many families have good reason to be concerned, but there is a wealth of information and resources available to you.

All colleges hire full-time financial advisors who keep current with the latest changes concerning financial aid and the financial aid process. Financial aid is offered through a package which may include any of the following: scholarships, student loans, and or work programs. If you have any financial aid related questions, please contact the financial aid office at the colleges to which you are applying.

  • Students applying for federal and state aid must complete the FAFSA form after October 1st of their senior year.
  • You will need last year's tax return, as well as your parents'. Financial aid funds are dispersed on a first come, first serve basis, so do not delay applying. Filing online is recommended, as the forms are processed immediately.
  • You must file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at http://fafsa.ed.gov/
  • Many college/university and private scholarship programs require students to complete the FAFSA and/or the CSS Profile as part of the scholarship process. Please read the scholarship information carefully to determine if either or both of these forms are required.
