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.
