These estimates do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price. Price of attendance and financial aid availability change year to year. Not all students receive financial aid. In the period of July-June 2012-2013, 86 percent of our fall cohort (August to October) full-time students enrolling for college for the first time received Pell Grant funding. Students may also be eligible for student loans and other aid not included in this percentage. Students must complete the FAFSA® to determine their eligibility for federal financial aid. For more information on applying for federal student aid, go to www.fafsa.ed.gov.

The loan amount you need to borrow can be significantly reduced by increasing the monthly personal contribution made while in school.

The federal student loan program allows you to choose from a designated repayment plan to meet your needs. To learn more, visit the Federal Student Aid website.
