Applying For Aid
You can apply for financial aid. During your interview as a prospective student, we will then compute a needs analysis based on the amount of income or resources compared to the cost of education and travel expenses.
If you qualify, we will help you prepare the appropriate Financial Aid application. If you don’t receive financial aid or simply want to pay for your schooling without aid, our financial aid officer will develop a personalized payment program for you.
If you wish to apply for financial aid or you have questions, or you need sections of the handbook clarified, contact our financial aid office.
