Types of Aid
Financial assistance is available to students in many forms, including:
- Scholarships and grants
- Student and parent loans
- Education savings plans
- Education tax credits
- Tuition reduction plans
- Veterans' benefits
- Tuition reimbursement
Assistance might be awarded by the federal or state government, the university, or private sources such as employers and community organizations.
Families may also consider home equity loans as a source of educational funding.
The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is required for many forms of aid. We recommend that all students apply as soon as possible after Jan 1 each year.
