Financial Aid for Undergraduates
There are many types of financial aid available to fund your education including Grants, Scholarships, Loans and Work-Study. Most financial aid is awarded based on need and family financial circumstances, but loans are available to students from all financial backgrounds. Financial aid is available for U.S. citizens, permanent residents and other eligible non-citizens who are enrolled at least half-time in an undergraduate program that leads to a degree or certificate.
