Financial Assistance, Fees, and Tuition

Financial Aid
To be considered for federal financial aid, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on the Internet at http://www.fafsa.gov/. No processing fee is required for FAFSA.

Students filing the FAFSA online are required to use their FAFSA PIN as the online signature to complete the application. If you do not have a PIN number, go to http://www.pin.ed.gov/ for a PIN request. The FAFSA must be submitted no later than February 15 prior to the start of the academic year to determine priority eligibility for Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Nursing Student Loan, Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, and Federal Work-Study employment program. Applications for graduate financial aid received after the priority deadline date will be considered for Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized Stafford Loan eligibility.

Students who receive federal financial aid will also be expected to maintain standards of satisfactory academic progress as defined by federal guidelines and school academic policy.
