FINANCIAL AID IS ALSO AVAILABLE
You may choose to pay for the remaining portion of your degree through federal financial aid (subject to your eligibility). Federal Pell Grants, which do not have to be repaid, are granted based upon financial need. Federal unsubsidized student loans are available to most students. Subsidized loans, which are dependent on financial need, reduce the interest due on loans. Click here to learn more about financial aid.
