Financial aid consists of funds provided to your child and family to help pay for post-secondary educational expenses. These funds include scholarships, grants, loans and workstudy student employment. Even if you don't believe that your child will qualify for aid, we encourage you to apply. There are numerous needs-based programs available, and you don't want to miss a possible opportunity for assistance.
