Financial Aid - FAQ

If you think you will need help paying for your college expenses, you should apply by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You will often find FAFSAs at local high schools, colleges or libraries, or you can apply electronically using FAFSA on the Web at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

The calculation which determines eligibility for aid is complicated. There is no easy, straight forward "income cut-off" or other method to help you anticipate whether you'll be eligible – the only way to find out for sure is to apply. If your family circumstances change, the financial aid office is in a better position to help if your application is already on file.
