Financial Aid

New students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for summer and the 2016-2017 FAFSA if they plan to return in the fall/spring. 

All current students should watch their e-mail for a special summer financial aid application that they will need to complete to find out if they are eligible for summer aid.
