Paying for College

Financial Aid

We are committed to making your education affordable. We base your eligibility for our financial aid on the total cost of attendance, not just the direct costs, so that you'll have a more realistic budget and financial aid package. 

Cost to Attend

Review the cost to attend whether you're from in-state or out of state, and review both direct and indirect costs. 

Financing Your Education

Multiple forms of financial aid are available, including merit-based and need-based programs (PDF).
