All awards are administered by the Financial Aid Office in accordance with State and Federal Regulations and the University's equal educational opportunity policy.
Application forms for any type of federal aid may be obtained from https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa. You are welcome to drop by or call and we will be happy to discuss your financial aid with you and answer any questions you may have.
