Most colleges offer some form of financial aid. Financial aid comes from many different sources but you must apply in order to get it. The financial aid application opens October 1st and must be filled out during your senior year. For more information on financial aid, click here.
Outside of financial aid, students can also apply for various scholarships for more financial support. You can find more information on this under the "Scholarships" tab.
