What is Financial Aid?
Financial Aid is money for college. It includes any type of monetary assistance received by a student for a college education. This assistance can be in the form of scholarships, grants, work, tuition waivers, loans, and family contributions.
A financial aid award is usually a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study. Financial aid is awarded depending on the level of financial need to complete an education program. Scholarships may
be based on grade point average and other factors.
Financial aid is a partnership between a student and the college that acts as a flow-through for the funds provided to you. If you receive financial aid, it is expected that you will enroll full-time in the courses needed to complete your chosen major.
