Financial Aid Info for Students
Financial Aid Information for Students
Federal Pell Grant: A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Pell Grants are awarded usually only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or a professional degree.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant: The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) program is for undergraduates with exceptional financial need. Pell Grant recipients with the lowest expected family contributions (EFCs) will be considered first for an FSEOG. Just like Pell Grants, the FSEOG does not have to be repaid.
Federal Work-Study: Federal Work-Study (FWS) provides part-time jobs for undergraduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service and work related to the recipient's program of study.
Institutional Work-Study: Institutional Work-Study Provides part-time jobs for undergraduate students without regard to financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service and work related to the recipient’s program of study.
Federal Direct Loan Program: Federal student loans are available for undergraduates, graduate and professional students, and parents. Student loans must be repaid after the student leaves school; parent loans go into repayment immediately. Federal loans have a number of advantages over most private loans.
