Pay for School

Invest in your education

As you begin to calculate your next move, our advisors can help you create the best financial plan to pay for school. Our Net Price Calculator can provide a preliminary estimate of federal, state and institutional aid eligibility.

Grants, scholarships, student loans, waivers and work-study programs are available. Fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to see if you qualify. Apply between January 1 and March 1 for priority consideration.
