Are You Eligible?

Many students can be eligible to receive some form of financial aid. Outside of Title IV funding, there are other options, like scholarships, for students who do not qualify for aid or are non-traditional students looking to further their education and receive some type of aid.

Why You Should Apply

Investing in your education will impact your life and the lives of those you care for. Attending college will open many opportunities such as increased finances, experience, career possibilities, flexibility, and much more!

It’s never too late to invest in your future. With so many financial options, there are many ways you can further your education and pay for it too.

Your Financing Options

Going back to school does come with a price—literally. So, how do you pay for your degree? We’ve broken it down below so you can stop worrying about finances and start focusing on your new life in your new career.

Listed below is a breakdown of various types of loans and funding that is available.

  • Federal Loans

Start by applying for financial aid at FAFSA.gov. FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid and there is no age restriction on who can apply. When you complete your FAFSA, you gain access to federal grants and loans. Federal loans have lower interest rates than private loans, so you save money.

  • Federal Grants

If you can show that you have financial need, you may qualify for a Federal Pell Grant. A Pell Grant is free money that you do not have to repay. Currently, the maximum you can receive through a Pell Grant is $7395 for 2023-2024. The best part is, when you fill out your FAFSA, you are automatically in the running for a Pell Grant.

  • Scholarships

Just like grants, scholarships are free money, usually based on financial need and/or academic merit. Ask your admissions advisor to help you identify local scholarships or check scholarships.com or fastweb.com for scholarship opportunities that you may qualify for based on your individual situation.

Where To Go

To create a student ID and account, prospective students need to visit the Federal Student Aid website. Here students can also find information about types of aid, who gets aid, the process of how to apply for aid, help with preparing for college, and much more!
