There are four types of financial aid for which a student may apply:
Grants are awarded based solely on financial need and do not require repayment. They may come from the federal government, the state or the University.
Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement. For many University scholarships, financial need is an additional criterion of eligibility. Scholarships do not require repayment.
Loans are low-interest awards that must be repaid after students terminate their studies at the University.
Federal Work Study
Work study is awarded based upon the financial need of the student. Students can earn money towards their school expenses. Work study earnings are not applied directly to your semester bill. Students receive a paycheck.
