Financial Aid

Here are a few things to think about:

  • Fall 2021 applicants - when you apply and are accepted - you'll receive at least 50% off your tuition in scholarships or awards.
  • You won't have to do it on your own: 97% of our students receive some form of financial aid.
  • We distribute $25 million a year in grants and scholarships - they don't have to be paid back.
  • Most of our financial aid packages include twice as much value in non-repayable grants as they do in loans.
  • We urge all prospective students to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It's not just for federal loans - it could also get you a work study job on campus. Our Federal School code for FAFSA is: 002668
