To be eligible to receive Financial aid, a student must meet the following requirements:

  • Be enrolled as a regular student in an eligible program.
  • Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
  • Make satisfactory academic progress.
  • Have a high school diploma, or its equivalent.
  • Sign a statement of Educational Purpose/Certification Statement on refunds and default.

Application Process

Students that require financial aid must complete the free Federal Student Aid Application form from the U.S. Department of Education. The Student Aid Report (SAR) or Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) received will contain the information the students gave on their application, plus their expected family contribution number which determines their eligibility for the Pell Grant and other programs.

The student must submit the SAR or ISIR, as well as the Institutional Application for Financial Aid, with the required documents to the Financial Aid Office. The student must complete promptly each step in the process, so as not to miss any deadlines. Non compliance with the deadline may result in the denial of the requested financial aid.

To determine eligibility, the Financial Aid Office considers the student’s financial need and academic status. For the specific requirements of each program and additional information about financial aid, see the Student Financial Aid Officer in the Financial Aid Office.
