Financial Assistance & Scholarship
The University will determine and attempt to meet the financial need of each student based upon the FAFSA and CSS Profile forms. In addition to grants, awards may contain a self-help component in the form of loans and/or on-campus employment. Loan programs are also available beyond need-analysis guidelines. Many transfer students have highly individualized situations and may need financial counseling. The Financial Aid Office is well prepared to provide this service and welcomes inquiries. Financial aid is not available for part-time or international transfer students.
