Financial Aid

Before choosing the school where you hope
to receive your degree, you probably will
take the time to compare tuition costs as
well as the cost for fees. Applying for
financial aid from the federal government
is an important part of beginning your
college education. You probably do not
have enough for college lying around or
even in the bank. You will likely need
some assistance. If you believe that your
income is too high to be given federal
grants or other help, then you should
still fill out the application in case it
is needed by the university for their
programs.
