Types of Aid
Grants are awarded based on demonstrated financial need. Grants do not require repayment, unless you do not complete the credits you registered for.
Scholarships are a form of gift aid that doesn’t require repayment. They’re generally awarded on such factors as academic achievement, talent, athletic ability, or field of study.
Loans must be repaid. Typically, repayment begins 6 months after you are no longer enrolled at a minimum of 6 credits. Students must first have their eligibility for other types of aid determined and then may start applying for loans by following the loan application process.
Work study allows you to earn part of your financial aid by working on or off campus.
