Types of Aid
There are many different programs available to assist families in meeting the cost
of higher education. Although every family’s financial aid package will be different,
each consists of a combination of grants, loans and/or work study.
Aid is also available for study abroad and winter/summer sessions.
Basic responsibility for financing higher education rests with students and their
families; financial aid is offered to supplement the family's maximum financial effort.
