Financial Aid

Please note: Due to the closure of campus, if you need to provide any paperwork/documentation to the Financial Aid Office, we request that you please provide electronic versions/scans to us via email at


The office processed about $39 million in scholarships, grants, and loans in 2018-19. This has helped to provide assistance to more than 89% of our students.

The Financial Aid Office administers federal and state aid programs, such as grants, scholarships, student loans, and Federal Work-Study employment. 

How Financial Aid works:

Apply for admission (new applicants only) »

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The FAFSA is used to determine financial aid eligibility and is available in both English and Spanish (A link is provided at the top right of the home page to change the entire site to Spanish). The application deadline is April 1 each year. Using the IRS Data Retrieval Process to transfer your tax information to your FAFSA can significantly reduce the time it takes to complete the FAFSA process.

  • School Code for filing the FAFSA: 008815
  • Priority filing deadline for 2020-2021: April 1, 2020
  • Find Scholarships – Students are automatically verified for academic and merit-based scholarships, but finding outside scholarships will help to pay less money out-of-pocket or through loans.
Use the quick-and-easy scholarship finder to learn about financial aid opportunities specific to you!

Financial Aid Offer Letter

After the FAFSA has been completed, a Financial Aid Offer letter will be emailed to the student. This determines your eligibility regarding:
