A college education is one of the most important investments a student and family can make. You and your family will be expected to contribute as much as you can from your own resources (income, savings, and assets) to help meet your college expenses.
The purpose of financial aid is to help students and families meet educational expenses that cannot be met through their own resources. Financial aid can be either need-based or non-need-based. The results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), along with the cost of attendance, will determine whether or not a student demonstrates financial need.
