Your Journey. Our Commitment.

We meet 100% of every student’s demonstrated financial need. That’s a promise.

We understand that applying for financial aid can be a daunting task.  For this reason, we do our best to make the financial aid process as straightforward as possible. Factors affecting a student's eligibility include, but are not limited to, a family's income and size, number of siblings in college, the cost of education leading up to college, and family assets. Please explore this website for more information and answers to all your questions.
