Financial Aid and Scholarships

We recommend that all students apply for financial aid every year. You never know what you will be eligible for until you apply!

Special Reminders

  • There are two Financial Aid disbursements per semester for those with completed files at the beginning of the semester.

  • Disbursements happen on a weekly basis, as files are completed.

  • You will not be awarded for waitlisted classes, unless they are added before Census Date. We will not adjust awards for students with completed files after that date.

  • Summer is a non-standard term and is awarded differently than Fall and Spring semesters.
