Applying for Federal Financial Aid is completely free and we suggest you fill out your FAFSA as early in the application process as possible to see what you qualify for. Many of our students qualify for aid packages that cover 25-100% of Tuition & Supplies. There are a number of financing options you may qualify for, these are: 
• Federal Pell Grant Program (up to $4,130)

To begin your Financial Aid process, you must first fill out your FAFSA (If possible try to link your tax information from the IRS using the IRS-Data Retrieval Tool). After completing your FAFSA, our Financial Aid Director will work with you directly on your Financial Aid Package.
