Financing your college career is a collaborative effort – merit scholarships, on one hand, help tackle the overall cost of your college degree, leaving financial aid to help cover the remaining balance. 100% of this year’s incoming class received financial assistance, including scholarships, non-repayable grants, educational loans, and part-time work-study.
To be considered for any need-based financial aid (including grants and loans), you should submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
