Financial aid is money to help pay for college or career school. Grants, work-study, loans, and scholarships help make college or career school affordable. You can apply for aid Here.
Most types of grants, unlike loans, are sources of free money that generally do not have to be repaid. There are several types of grants available through the U.S. Department of Education and other sources.
- Federal Pell Grant: Undergraduates with financial needs can receive a Federal Pell Grant for up to 12 semesters (or a total of 6 years).
- Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant: For undergraduates with exceptional financial need. Funds depend on availability at school.
Loans are money you borrow and must pay back with interest. There are several types of loans available through the U.S. Department of Education:
- Direct Subsidized Loans: For undergraduates who have financial need. The U.S. Department of Education pays the interest while the borrower is in school and during grace and deferment periods.
- Direct Unsubsidized Loans: For all undergraduate students. The borrower is responsible for all interests.
- Direct PLUS Loans: For parents of dependent undergraduate students. The borrower is responsible for all interests.
We offer comfortable payment plan rates for those programs and students which financial aid is not available.
