Additional Information

We know every family’s prospect of paying for college tuition is influenced by varying levels of financial resources, and that family circumstances can change from year to year. The staff in our Office of Student Financial Aid strive to accommodate various economic situations, and will help create a manageable financial aid packet that incorporates loans, payment plans, and merit- and need-based scholarships. A very important part of the college search process includes learning more about the investment in your future.
