What is Financial Aid?
Student financial aid is assistance which helps pay the cost of education, for those who qualify. Funds included in this aid may be provided from several sources, including federal, state and private agencies. Most financial aid recipients receive a combination “package” comprised of more than one type of assistance program such as Federal Pell Grants and Federal Direct Student Loans. Grant aid is money that does not have to be repaid. Loan assistance includes borrowed money that will be repaid by the applicant.
