Scholarships, Financial Aid, and Other Financial Resources

Scholarships facilitate choice and affordability for students of varying income levels.

Student loans offer students an option of paying for school if they cannot afford tuition out of pocket or if scholarships and grants do not fully cover their college-related expenses.
